Huawei P20 Lite, also known as, Huawei Nova 3e, will be getting the Android Pie based EMUI 9.0 soon – in July 2019 – not in April as it was expected earlier. The development around this phone has taken several delays with new software updates.
We have seen Huawei actively rolling out software updates for newer models, but the P20 Lite has been sitting back for a while now. The phone runs on Android Oreo and was first expected to receive Android 9 Pie / EMUI 9 this month (April 2019). However, that did not happen. And as per the official statement from the Huawei team, they will be releasing the update three months later.
Huawei P20 Lite is one of the successful phones by Huawei last year. It has great specs and offer a number of features that other phones do not offer in its price range. However, the software updates around this phone have been slow. P20 Lite does not even get the usual monthly Android updates. One reason for this delay by the Huawei team is that they are still developing and testing EMUI 9.0 for this phone.
Here is the official statement from Huawei:
“We are currently developing and testing EMUI 9.0 (based on Android 9 Pie) for Huawei P20 Lite and you will be receiving the update in July 2019.”– Huawei
Well, there you have it. The delay is official and P20 Lite users will have to wait longer for the Android 9 Pie update.
