Huawei is expected to launch its flagship device, the Mate 10 in October, to be precise on October 16. As per previous reports, Huawei Mate 10 was the first device to feature EMUI 6.0. However, in a strange turn of events, some users have spotted EMUI 6.0 on Honor V9.

Yes, you read that right. Honor V9. Who would have thought that Huawei would send it to V9 first instead of launching it with Mate 10. Further, EMUI 6.0 is based on Android 8.0 Oreo as per users.
