The Huawei Mate 9 has been in available in the U.S. for a few weeks now but the Chinese OEM has an update already rolling out to the phablet.
Apparently, those who are using the Huawei Mate 9 from the U.S. can now get a new OTA update that ups the software version to MHA-L29C567B167. Like you’d expect from any such OTA update, the tech giant has included a few bug fixes and performance improvements. Those who have been experiencing some issues with using Google Voice can now rejoice as the update has a fix for this application. The update is also said to bring a bunch of optimizations to the home screen, but at this point in time, the exact changes are still unclear.
As noted earlier, this Huawei Mate 9 update is rolling out over the air and as such, not all units available in the U.S. market will be updated at once. Some will be left behind while others lead the way, but this doesn’t mean the former group won’t receive the update, eventually. If you notice extraordinary delays in the rollout process, you can do a manual check of the files’ availability by heading to the phone’s Settings>About device>System updates and from here, you can check the status of the update.
Huawei Mate 9 was released in December 2016 but made it to the U.S. in early January. The phone packs a massive 5.9-inch display screen that is supported by a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and has Gorilla Glass 3 on top. Under the hood, the Mate 9 ships with the impressive HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor that is paired with a RAM of 4GB. The storage is 64GB, but it can also be expanded via a microSD card of up to 256GB.
In terms of photography, you’ll for sure enjoy the dual 20MP+12MP setup on the back that is accompanied by an 8MP shooter on the front. For software, Huawei Mate 9 comes with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat preinstalled out of the box and to keep it alive is a huge 4000mAh battery that is charged via a USB-C port with support for fast charging technology.
