While EMUI 10 OS is one of the things to look forward to Huawei smartphone users, there are still a lot of them who are still using old school devices that probably can't get that operating system. We are talking about 2016 smartphones including HONOR but at least they will still be able to get EMUI 9.1. Below is the official list of all the Huawei and HONOR phones getting the EMUI 9.1 update.

After the announcement of Huawei's GPU Turbo, slides from mydrivers have appeared indicating that the first Huawei smartphone to get the GPU boosting technology may be the Huawei Mate 10 series on top of other updates. As a refresher, GPU Turbo increases the efficiency of the GPU coupled together with EMUI to help make the overall device 60% more efficient and reduce power consumption by up to 30% as well.

Today, the Honor announced in China the new Honor V9, alongside the Honor 8 Lite. With specs rivalling that of the Huawei Mate 9, it comes at a lower price, but, not without some cut-down specifications, such as retaining last year’s dual 12MP rear camera instead of the newer 20MP+12MP combo.
Prices start from 2599 Yuan (around RM1685) for the 4GB/64GB upwards to 3499 Yuan (around RM2266) for the top end 6GB/128GB model.

In case you didn’t know, it’s not uncommon for Chinese smartphone manufacturers to slap a different name on their phones for international release purpose. One good example is when Oppo released the F1 Plus as an international model, but it’s the same one as the R9. So today, it seems that the latest news is that the Honor V9 will have a name-change for international release.
