It seems that the Huawei P9 Lite may be receiving the Android 7.0 update after all. We got a tip in the mail that one owner of a SIM free P9 Lite has gotten an over the air update on his phone in Japan.
The reader isn’t enrolled in the beta testing program so this shouldn’t be an unfinished build of Nougat.
The firmware sports the build number VNS-L22C635B361 which looks to be official and may very well be the same firmware that Huawei pulled from seeding just yesterday.
It’s possible that Huawei has sorted whatever brought the update to a halt and will gradually resume its progress.
Thanks for the tip!
