Huawei is rolling out a major software update to its Mate 9 smartphone, days before its European release. The update to the build B126 takes care of the notification bugs and improves performance.

According to a report on AndroidCentral website, the smartphone’s global dual-SIM version is receiving a prominent update with respect to notifications being displayed in white text, rendering them unreadable. It also displays app icons at the top left corner of the screen for notifications. The earlier build showed just a number next to the app icon.

Apart from the update mentioned above, the report also claims that the camera on board the Mate 9 will see significant improvement with the addition of a 6X hybrid zoom and a tweak to the interface to snap up to 2X zoomed images as well. Along with these, its workability under low-light conditions has also increased with changes to colour accuracy as well.

The Android 7.0 Nougat-based Huawei Mate 9 Pro features a 5.5-inch dual edge curved AMOLED display with QHD (2560×1440 pixels) resolution. It is powered by an octa-core HiSilcon Kirin 960 processor that was recently launched by the company.

On the optics front, the smartphone includes second-generation Leica cameras. It has a dual-camera setup, comprised of a 20MP monochrome module and a 12MP colour module. In addition, optical image stabilization (OIS), a 4-in-1 hybrid autofocus system (having laser, phase detection, depth and contrast detection) is included in the mix. There’s also dual-tone dual LED flash.
