It is being reported that Huawei has released a new software update for the Honor 9N phone. However, it is not the much-awaited EMUI 9.0 update but rather a security patch update that brings the phone’s security level up to November 2018, according to the changelog of the update.

The update bears software version LLD-AL20 8.0.0.131 (C675) and its size is 112MB. This update can be downloaded directly from your phone once you receive a notification regarding its availability. If you haven’t received a notification yet, you may search for updates manually through the settings app.
