Android 9 Pie is now official for a few days and has already started the race to updates between the major manufacturers to bring the latest release of Android on their products. It seems that this time Huawei wants to reserve a front row seat, at least according to the words of the Huawei’s pollen club’s announcement from China.
In a shared post on Weibo, Gang announces that Huawei has sent the first test builds in its internal beta tester circuit as early as August 6 – a day ahead of the official announcement of Android Pie.
The included devices are Mate 10 Pro, P20 and the Honor 10 and V10, which have already received an update dedicated to a very small number of beta testers who have begun to provide initial feedback to the development team. Over the next few weeks, Huawei will expand the number of participants and is likely to set up a recruitment campaign in other markets as well.
We will have to wait a few more months before witnessing the distribution of the first Android Pie stable version, which will necessarily have to pass several test phases.
