Global rollout of Honor 8 Nougat update begins

After rolling out to unlocked units in Japan this week, the Huawei Honor 8 Nougat update has now started hitting units in several other countries as well. It’s a heavy update that weighs in at around 2.23GB, and brings along EMUI 5.0, which debuted on the Mate 9.

The update that rolled out in Japan was under 2GB in size, and it also included some system-related optimizations, stability-related improvements, and better app versatility. So, while it’s currently not known exactly what the global update brings along (aside from EMUI 5.0), it’s safe to assume that a lot of other changes are included.
