  1. Please reconfirm your info on updates for Huawei Y Max as there seems to be inconsistent statements from Huawei as to EMUI updates for Y series phones among others. I have an Honor 8x Max ARE-AL10 rebranded via firmware to ARS-L22 (i.e. Y Max). My phone is still running Oreo 8.2.0 and the Y Max did not even get EMUI 9/9.1 (???!!!)
