Android Nougat

A few days ago, we told you that Huawei has plans to update some of its existing devices with Android Nougat in 2017. The company had plans to update the Huawei Mate 8 and the P9 first before updating some of its other recent devices.

With Android Nougat, Huawei is not waiting for 2017 as it has started updating the Huawei P9 and Mate 8 units. The update has started rolling out to the device in China yesterday and this means those in other markets should be getting it very soon, probably before the end of the year. This update came as a surprise but is a good one nonetheless.
