Google surprised everybody on Monday by officially releasing the Android 9 Pie operating system. While the OS is only available on Google Pixel and Essential PH-1 at the moment, the big question on everybody else’s mind is how soon will it be rolling out on other devices. Most brands are yet to reveal details, but some have stepped forward giving their customers some insight. One of them is Huawei.

According to Gizchina, Huawei’s president of mobile phone product line, He Gang, recently revealed that the company has already started beta testing of Android 9 Pie on four of its devices. This includes, Huawei P20, Huawei Mate 10, Honor 10, and Honor V10.

The website even reported Huawei’s Pollen Club to have pushed out the internal beta testing to a small number of members on August 6. Following that, the recruitment for the official internal testing will be rolled out to a majority of the users, as soon as the update is ready.
