It’s been quite a long time since Google released the latest version of Android, that is Android Oreo. The new system is already on some smartphones, but they are still very few. Since the new year will begin a massive installation of a new system from Google.
In today’s article, we will talk about the company Huawei, which has a not very good reputation for updates. Nevertheless, they are trying to do everything possible to provide the latest version of the system with their premium phones, as well as some budget, but this manufacturer is very slow in providing updates to its users.
The latest flagship Huawei smartphones, that is, the recently released Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, ship with Android Oreo 8.0 already out of the box, which is a good sign that the company is working on providing updates. And it will provide an update not only for new devices, but also for older ones, as the company recently confirmed the update of Android Oreo for the Huawei Mate 9 series and Huawei P10.
Speaking of slow updates, if you ask, why does Huawei update its devices for a long time? The answer is, the manufacturer’s overlay, it integrates into your device on top of Vanilla Android. It is EMUI, that is, the manufacturer’s overlay, which leads to slower updates.
The latest version of Android comes with many new features, such as support for pictures in the picture, notifications on labels, new emoji, new settings menu, faster download speed, support for Android Instant Apps and much more.
