Global rollout began a few days ago and Fido lists Dec 19th as the rollout date but still no OTA update on my P20 Pro. Has anyone actually received the update yet? I'm getting impatient
@Proac I don't even bother with what Fido's OS Upgrade page have, I find its usually almost not as accurate.
For instance the Samsung Galaxy J3 Prime Fido has it as Android N 7.0 June SMR when in fact its actually on Android 8.1 October SMR and the Galaxy A8 2018 Fido has it as Android N 7.1.1 November SMR + other updates when in fact its actually Android 8 November SMR.
What is the model number of your P20 Pro?
Hey there @Proac!
It is a staggered roll-out, meaning that the update will be pushed in batches between December 19 and January 14th. Hang in there, you're getting it shortly!
If there's anything else we can do for you in the meantime, don't hesitate to ask!
Oh come on, 3 weeks for a rollout? I'm no fan of Apples closed ecosystem but how is it they manage to provide updates for millions of devices all at once? No one needs to wait weeks for an iOS upgrade. If Huawei still provided unlock codes for the bootloader I'd already have Android 9.0
Me too! [impatient]
Fido announced P20 Pros would get Pie/Emui9 in December back in late Nov.. I bought my P20 Pro after that announcement and watching the calendar and waiting for that 'sales incentive' to happen and Dec doesnt have long to run!
My P20 pro wouldn't update beyond 111 off handset update, I managed to push it to 120 using Hisuite, but the bigger changes come in what 136?...and of course emui9. Don't want to spend too much time figuring out and configuring out 8 when 9 is coming.....soon....
I've been on 120 for quite awhile now. Can't quite recall when I received that update. But still waiting impatiently for Android 9.0 to get pushed to my phone. It's rather that you need to win the update lottery to get your update before the same carriers customers with the exact same device. Frankly we should be getting a discount for the inconvenience
New year still no Pie for the P20 Pro. Maybe if I pray hard enough I'll see it in 2019? Honestly Fido should make the firmware available for download at least if they won't push it to all the devices in a reasonable amount of time. This update supposedly rolled out 12 days ago but when it comes to the big 3 providers you can't ever rely on the information they feed you. Not happy at the moment.
Off topic but I love my P20 Pro. As a professional photographer it’s by far the best smartphone camera I’ve ever seen. That being said Huawei seems to treat our market as insignificant. No longer can you unlock your bootloader thru Huawei for free. Now you’re expected to pay some third party outfit for the code to unlock your bootloader and root the device. I expected when it came time to upgrade I’d be looking at another Huawei device but the software support and slow OS upgrade is very off putting. If Apple can push their OS to tens of millions of devices all on the same day, I don’t get this whole 3 weeks of rollout for Android Pie.
