Huawei P20 Pro receiving Android 9.0 Pie update in Europe

Whilst this doesn't specifically say when the dates are, the details are on the servers and it seems rolling out across Europe this quarter across Honor and Huawei devices.

As a sidenote, I have reached to Huawei in China last Friday, but as China is on a National Holiday all this week, I've been advised I should have some answers next week as to what is happening in the UK.

Hope you find this article helpful

I'm running a Mate P20 Pro and on whist my Mate P10 Pro is on - out of interest @Gibbylinks what do you feel you are missing?

From dealing with Huawei in many areas and hearing Google talk about them with regards to the Android OS and Security, whilst they don't push updates every week or so like Android do, the way they deliver them seems to provide a secure and more robust/stable update, so your thoughts on what you feel your missing will be of interest
It's not a case of missing out. It's a security issue. Whilst I wouldn't expect Huawei to be on the same page as Pixel devices, I would have expected the security patches to be delivered a little more frequently.

I thought there was some directive from Google in this respect, weren't they putting pressure on manufacturers to deliver these patches quicker and more frequently.

Not bothered about new features, just a monthly update on the patch would make me happier.

The security update situation is unacceptable. I'm still on the December 2018 patch. Huawei give the usual scripted responses. My old Samsung S7 Edge is up to date.

I won't buy another Huawei until this issue is resolved. Why doesn't the UK C782 version receive updates? Its a shame because I love this phone and want to buy another one.
