Will Huawei Y6s, Y8s, and Y9s Get Android 12 (HarmonyOS) Update?

With the launch of Android 12, it looks like finally, Android is now a worthy opponent against iOS. However, for the first time, we are going to see a tough fight between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. But, as we know, the release date of Android is still not clear. But, it is sure that it will be released by the end of this year.

The Android 12 beta 5 version is currently running on various smartphones that are part of the android development program. But, there are many devices that aren’t part of this development program, like Huawei. Therefore, users are getting worried whether their Huawei devices will get the Android 12 Harmony OS 2.0 update or not.

However, especially there are three devices Huawei Y6s, Y8s, and Y9s, which are in a doubtful situation whether these devices are eligible for the update because these devices launched with Android 9 (Pie) out of the box and already received some major android updates. So, if you are here to know about the reports regarding the update for this device, then make sure to read till the end.
