The Huawei P9 was presented in 2016 as the flagship of the Chinese firm incorporating interesting novelties such as its dual rear sensor signed by Leica, thus becoming the first device of the company to mount cameras signed by the famous German company.

This smartphone arrived with the EMUI 4.0 customization layer based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and over time we saw its lifespan come to an end with EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. But now, more than five years after its launch, the Huawei P9 is getting a new system update focused on fixes and improving system performance, although, yes, for now it will be reserved for sold versions. in China.

Updated security fixes and other system performance improvements

As reported by ITHome, Huawei is releasing firmware version EVA-TL00 8.0.0.558 (C01) which has a total weight of around 318MB and which, at least for now, is only available in Chinese versions of the Huawei P9. .

According to the release notes, the update incorporates updated security fixes as well as other improvements that refer to system performance. Among them we find the optimization of the smart search function that is activated by sliding the finger down on the home screen and with which we can quickly access the various functions of the system even if the device is offline.

In addition, it is also stated that the system stability has been optimized and an app recommendation folder has been added on the home screen, to which is added the removal of preinstalled apps such as AutoNavi and WPS Office.

As we can see, this update will help our already veteran Huawei P9 to have slightly more optimal performance although, as we mentioned, for the moment it will be reserved only for the Chinese versions of the terminal. However, since the Huawei P9 introduced the smart charging feature to all markets last year, this software update will likely arrive worldwide soon, so we will stay tuned for any further development in this regard.
