As promised EMUI 8.0 is being delivered to Huawei’s Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro (also the Porsche Design model). This is the latest version of Huawei’s Android customization, it is based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
The phones launcher around this time last year with EMUI 5.0 – which was based on Android 7.0 Nougat (Huawei decided to rejigger the version numbers).
Anyway, this new versions brings over many of the AI features that the the new Mate 10 brought. This includes the digital assistant with voice commands, translation and more. The desktop mode, called Projection, is part of the update as well.
If the update hasn’t reached you over the air, you can use Huawei’s HiCare app to request an update. Note that it seems the rollout started in China so other regions may need to wait a while.
The EMUI 8.0 update for the Huawei P10 and Honor V9 is currently in Beta.

I am in Nigeria (West Africa). I just received EMUI 8.0 and Android 8.0 update on my Mate 9 (MHA-L29). It took about 1 hour 10 minutes over GSM 4G data network. All my settings and data remained intact.
Yeah for Mate 9 only. I have aq Mate 9 Pro and the pro versions that were sold in the us market won't get the updates. Really sucks. Just had a long chat with Huawei customer service about it.
The Update is rolling out in North America at this time .
