Huawei today started rolling out the final version of Android Oreo for the Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro.

Users should be receiving a prompt to update OTA on unlocked devices, carrier-locked phones may take a little longer, however, you can check if the update is available to you by using Huawei's HiCare application on your phone. The upgrade does not require a factory reset. You can read our in-depth review of all the incredible tweaks Google jammed into the latest version of the OS here.

The Android 8.0 Oreo update is now not available as an OTA but can be manually downloaded to the phone. Still, this is a positive sign and hopefully means that the wait for the Oreo-powered EMUI 8.0 is finally coming to an end.

The new update many features to the last year's flagship phablet adopted from its successor Mate 10. The desktop mode, called Projection, is part of the update as well.

In October, Huawei launched the Oreo beta program for these devices, and we have already seen screenshots of what the update looks like thanks to a leak. Some of the new features include the digital assistant with voice commands, translation and more. The Huawei Mate 9 MHA-AL00, Mate 9 Porsche Edition, Mate 9 Pro Full Netcom Version LON-AL00, and Mate 9 Full Netcom Version MHA-TL00 are supported.

No information when the global variant of the Huawei Mate 9 will be available but it should roll out soon.
