Huawei has been hitting the headlines lately and it feels like it is bad news after bad news. Well, in a move that will definitely inspire confidence in the company’s customers, the Huawei Y9 (2019) is getting Android Pie update.
The device was launched late last year (despite the 2019 branding) to a great reception in the market, with many terming the device as a turnaround point for the company to better position itself to fight off the damning effects of Transsion-owned TECNO and Infinix.
The device, which currently retails for around Kes.20,000 receives a new level of attractiveness with this new update. For the highlights, the device features a 6.5-inch display, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, 4000mAh battery and camera setup that shames quite a number of devices.
The changelog not only includes an upgrade to EMUI 9.0 but also comes with a number of patch fixes. Huawei says that this new update is “packed with technical wonders and streamlined processes”. We don’t know what that means exactly but it sounds promising.
The update is a sizeable 3.19GB package, although users have alerted us that the update is available for model number JKM-LX1, those with JKM-LX2 and JKM-LX3 (Single SIM) will have to wait a little longer.

It is just today that we reported that Huawei was working on convincing developers to avail their popular apps on their personal AppGallery, despite this, it is great to see the company taking advantage of their 90-day grace period to send out updates to their current phones as we await the outcome of the trade ban between Huawei and U.S. companies.
Thanks, @NavonOdeny for the tip
Are there upgrades for y7 2019?
