Huawei’s alleged Android Nougat roadmap just leaked. Now, this is not the first time we’re seeing such info leak online, something similar leaked a couple of months ago, and it seems like that info was rather accurate thus far. In any case, this new roadmap includes smartphones that were not present in the previous roadmap, this seems to be an updated version of Huawei’s Android Nougat update plans. Having that in mind, let’s take a look at Huawei’s alleged plans, shall we.
As you can see, some of the devices on this list have already received their update, like the Huawei P9, the Huawei P9 Plus and the Huawei Mate 8. So, what phone is next in line to get the update? Well, according to this info, the Huawei Nova will get the Android Nougat update in March, while the Huawei G9 Plus and the Honor Note 8 will follow in April. The last two devices on this list are the Honor 6X smartphone and the MediaPad M3 tablet which are scheduled to get updated in May. Now, as it’s usually the case with such leaks, do take this info with a grain of salt, as we cannot confirm that it is legit in any way. If this information is true, however, then Huawei is really doing a good job when it comes to updating their devices, even those that are a bit older at this point.
Along with the Android Nougat update, Huawei’s and Honor’s smartphones are also getting Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0 skin, as some of you might know already. The company debuted EMUI 5.0 on the Huawei Mate 9 when they announced it back in November last year. Huawei more or less re-announced the device earlier this month as part of CES 2017. In any case, Android Nougat and EMUI 5.0 bring quite a few improvements to Huawei’s devices, ranging from a more robust and productive notification shade, all the way to UI and battery tweaks. Huawei’s EMUI skin is somewhat different than stock Android, but the company did their best to transfer Android Nougat’s features to their devices, as we’ve seen EMUI 5.0 run on a couple of devices already.
