Smartphones usually receive several types of updates: A major update which is usually a generation leap and carries a lot of tweaks and bug fixes like Android 9 Pie for example. The other update that you’ll normally receive are security fixes which are smaller in size compared to major updates but they are aimed to fix vulnerabilities.
Huawei launched the Y7 Prime 2019 in January this year and it came with Android Oreo out of the box. However as the months progressed, it was getting behind on the monthly updates that Google dishes out. Since Huawei phones run EMUI on top of Android, you’d expect these updates to come later on.
Well now Huawei has released a monthly security patch for the Y7 Prime 2019 and it did not have a lot of information tagged to it, save for the fact that it was based on the March update.
The update, dubbed DUB-LX1 126.96.36.199 is a security update that includes Google’s security patch as well as Huawei’s own security patches. It boosts the Android security patch for the Y7 Prime 2019 to March 1 2019.
It is swell that Huawei has been able to update its budget offerings to a recent security patch but it is still not fast enough as since April is ending and we are waiting for Google to release the May patch in a few days.
We really liked the Huawei Y7 Prime 2019. It has 32GB of internal storage, 3GB of RAM and a massive 4000mAh battery that gives it excellent battery life and was a significant upgrade compared to the Y7 Prime 2018.
