The Huawei P9 was released in 2016 and has already gotten four successors. However, Huawei is not done releasing updates for the device. The latest one rolling out to the device updates the security patch and brings a new feature too.
The update which is rolling out in China has build number EVA-AL10 18.104.22.1680(C00) and is about 660MB in size. It comes with the security patch for July 2020 which is rolling out to phones such as the OnePlus 7 series and the Realme 5 series.
It has also been reported that the update brings a feature called Smart Charging that prevents the device from overcharging when plugged in to charge, most especially overnight. The feature slows down charging during the night since it knows the user will be asleep. The feature also helps slow down the battery’s aging process, though we are not sure about the battery life of a 4-year old device.
The Huawei P9 has a 5.2-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. There is a Kirin 955 processor under the hood along with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage. On the back is a 12MP dual-camera setup in an RGB+B/W setup while the front is home to an 8MP selfie camera.
The device has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, NFC, an audio jack, and a 3000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. When it launched, it ran Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and got an update to Android 7.0 Nougat.
