The long wait is almost over. In a recent Facebook post, Huawei Philippines confirmed that the EMUI 9 update for the Nova 3 has finally started seeding.

And for those who own the Huawei Nova 3i, don’t worry as you’re also a part of this good news. While the official announcement only mentions the Nova 3, Huawei announced in the comment section that the aforementioned update has also started seeding on Nova 3i devices.

But unlike the Nova 3, it looks like the update on the Nova 3i is seeding at a slower phase — at least at this moment. Huawei suggests that you go to the Settings menu > System > System Update > and access the 3-dot icon on the top to access the “Download Latest Full Package”.

If the download option is not present, this only means that the update is not yet ready for your unit.


The EMUI 9 is the latest interface from Huawei that’s basically a dressed Android 9 Pie OS. That’s the same interface that you get on the latest Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Huawei has already seeded the update on the P20-series as well as the Mate 10 devices.

As per the company, you must make sure that there’s at least 3GB of storage available on your device before downloading the update.
