The Nougat beta update will be rolling out to a limited number of users.  The first batch will include only 300 members.

The Huawei Maimang 5 is the Chinese variant of the G9 Plus. Both smartphones are powered by the Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset and comes with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a 3340mAh battery pack. The smartphones also come in a 3GB RAM variant with 32GB internal storage. Both devices were launched back in July 2016 with Marshmallow on board.
