More recently, the smartphone was spotted at Geekbench with Android 8.0 Oreo on board. Huawei MHA aka Mate 9 was Huawei’s first smartphone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat, just like the Mate 10 is expected to be the first to come with Oreo.
Even though we don’t have a specific timeframe for the release of the update, the recent listing of the Mate 9 at Geekbench suggests it won’t be long until Android Oreo will arrive on Huawei’s high-end smartphone.
Huawei has already confirmed its next flagship will be revealed on October 16, but the phone isn’t likely to hit the shelves until the end of the month. Huawei will probably want to release Android 8.0 Oreo for Mate 9 only after the Mate 10 makes its debut on the market.
