Huawei has released a new update which is named as (B396) for the Huawei P9. Let�s talk about the updates it brings to the phone.

Huawei P9 comes powered by the Hi Silicon Kirin 955 Chipset which is enough to handle any task, but every device somewhere has some issues, so to fix these problems, this update brings some improvements under the hood. The update weighs at 464MB, and the version number of the update is EVA-AL10C00B396. This update brings certain improvements in Gaming, Social and System functions. It is not an Android update; it is an improvement update released by Huawei.

MUST READ:Huawei and Honor phones that will get the Android Oreo update.

The major feature this update brings is that it brings the Live photo feature in the P9, earlier this was introduced in the Huawei P10-Series smartphones, and now you can capture live photos in your P9 as well. Let me recall you, Huawei P9 offers a 12MP+12MP rear Camera that can take DSLR like shots.

The update also brings some improvements in the back as well as in the front camera. Along with these features, it brings Wonderful moment feature, Scanning questions, Student mode, etc. Before installing it, we will prefer you to charge your phone up to 70% and take a backup of your valuable data.
