Officially, Huawei are now rolling out the stable update of Android 9.0 pie-based EMUI 9. The roll-out was pushed to seven (7) different devices at once after they have received the beta version months ago.
Apart from the Android Pie, the EMUI 9 based on Android Pie brings new UI, gesture-based navigation, and HiVision visual search that lets you do image search just like Google Lens. Huawei said that HiVision recognises landmarks from 15 countries as well as over 10 million famous artworks. It also recognises a great range of food items and can provide a calorie estimate for users who are conscious of their calorie intake.
Additionally, the update also brings new feature called HiTouch that enables users to search for something online by long pressing two fingers on an image. Huawei noted that this feature can recognize more than 120 million items from more than 200 e-commerce platforms and the official online stores of nearly 100 brands. Furthermore, the EMUI 9.0 brings one-click projection, GPU Turbo 2.0, and PC Mode.

- Huawei P20
- Huawei P20 Pro

The update arrives with the EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie for all the above listed phones. If you own any of these seven devices, the EMUI 9 based Android Pie update should arrive on your phone via an over-the-air (OTA) update.
However, this update comes after the EMUI 9 based Android Pie update was rolled out to Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro users in China earlier this month. Awesomely, the stable roll-out update is a global release, which means that it may take awhile before all users see the update notifications.
