As we’ve mention before, flagships from yesteryear are still solid investments. That case is especially true now that the Mate 9 is getting Android Oreo decked with new software features to make it feel new.
The update also applies to the Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Edition, both of which released alongside the standard Mate 9. As of the moment, only Chinese variants have been seeing the prompt; international units will have to wait a little longer.
Once you do get the update, you’ll be treated to a host of new features, including improvements to the AI integration and Huawei’s version of PC mode which lets you connect to an external monitor or TV without the need for a separate dock.
Those are on top of all the Oreo goodness that comes prepackaged, so Mate 9 users will feel even better about their investment.
