The Mate 9 is Huawei's first device to offer EMUI 5.0 — based on Nougat — out of the box, and the company is now announcing when other phones will receive the update. EMUI 5.0 will be rolled out to the Huawei P9, Nova and Nova Plus, and others in the first quarter of 2017.
These are the phones eligible for EMUI 5.0:
- Huawei Mate 8
- Huawei P9
- Huawei P9 Plus
- Huawei P9 lite
- Huawei Nova
- Huawei Nova Plus
Huawei will roll out beta tests before kicking off the final builds. In his review of the Mate 9, Alex Dobie liked the changes introduced in EMUI 5.0:
EMUI 5.0 is, for the most part, the huge improvement it needed to be. Most of Huawei's own preloaded apps have been given a complete visual overhaul, with white backdrops, light grey accents and blue highlights. Apps like the dialer, messages app, calendar and settings look more like they belong in the modern Android ecosystem, as opposed to seeming like weird not-quite-right-looking iOS clones.
And the new, darker notification shade, is more customizable than ever, with more icons shown at once than the old grid setup of old.
