There was once a time, when people were reluctant to trust the Chinese tech and gadgets. Least they knew some of the OEMs had their production plants in the same country. Fast forward to today, most of the popular smartphone companies have their roots in China.

Let’s take Huawei, the world’s second in the list of best selling smartphone brands. Originated in China, they managed to record a growth rate of 23% in the first half of this year. The OEM’s flagship offering P30 Pro is even regarded to have one of the best cameras.

The company is not just keen in launching smartphones, but also releasing frequent security updates (not to every variant, though?). Today itself, the August patch for Huawei Nova 3i/P Smart+ 2018 and Mate RS Porche design made an entry.

Leave aside the monthly security patches, more recent on the rollout is Huawei Y6 2019’s EMUI 9.1 update, as promised. From what we observe, the update notifications (bearing build number 9.1.U.240 , sized 2.35 GB) started picking up the devices few hours back. You can read the changelog below.

Change Log
This update optimizes the effects and colors of the visualization, and simplifies and optimizes the Settings items.
Standardize the colors to obtain a more dynamic visualization and fluid, and optimizes tactile vibrations.
[Simplified Settings]
Simplify settings and options for ease of use.
Add the Virid Beach theme.
Integrate Android security patches released in July 2019 to improve system security.


Clearly, it is a massive update. Huawei upgrades EMUI to 9.1 and brings July security patch. But as a user, you expect more from a package weighed 2.35 GB, don’t you? Allow us to mention the features you could have received, but didn’t.

Y6 2019 is outta luck as EMUI 9.1 specific features – that’ve been rolled out to other Huawei/Honor phones – like support for GPU Turbo 3.0 and EROFS technology are nowhere to be seen in the changelog.

GPU Turbo- Energy Consumption vs Performance

Another significant feature that Huawei Y6 2019 users apparently won’t get hands with the currently circulating update is the ARK Compiler. Eradicating the need for an interpreter, it allows direct translation into machine language. Thus, the compiler is supposed to offer maximized running efficiency for codes and thereby, boosting system operation fluency.

Here’s hoping the company issues updates providing support for the missing features in the coming future. You can stay tuned to our Huawei section to keep yourself notified.
