Huawei adds 5 more smartphones to the Android 9.0 Pie testing, Honor devices included

After announcing the first Huawei/Honor smartphones going through internal testing for the Android 9.0 Pie at the beginning of this month, the company published a list of 5 new additions.

The new phones are all flagships, as expected – Mate 10, Mate 10 Porsche Design, Mate RS Porsche Design, P20 Pro and Honor Play. This adds up to a total of nine devices that are going through the internal testing program. Here’s the complete list of models eligible for the beta update.

Huawei reminds that the at this stage, the software isn’t stable and may cause some issues with some third-party apps, battery drains, etc. Also, your phone shouldn’t be rooted and should be running the latest baseline version of the software. Here’s the list of supported build numbers.

The update requires at least 6GB of free internal storage and the program is looking for a total of 2,000 beta users – 200 of them will receive the new OS update sometime in the beginning of September while the rest will start getting it from late September.

Interestingly, the regular Huawei P20 will get stable Android 9.0 Pie in September before the Pro version, if its omission from the company’s official schedule is anything to go by.
