Around 4 years after launch, the Huawei P9 Lite surprisingly receives a security patch, they report on Huawei blog. Until now, it still worked with Android 7 Nougat and Google’s June 2018 Security Bulletin. Now some users are at least at the August 2019 level (VNS-L31C432B418), better than nothing.
Huawei wants Google apps for AppGallery
The experienced colleagues at Huawei.blog also recommend that you take all the options to uninstall the system applications that you do not like in view of the meager 16GB memory. If you want to get rid of NewsRepublic and HiGame, but have already updated them, you need to reset them to factory settings. This has to happen before the update, but after that they should go away. A new addition is AppGallery as a system application. As always, a backup copy is recommended before installing the 306MB software package.
