Recently, Honor India revealed that the Honor 8 will not get the Oreo update. However, the company has now confirmed that new features in the EMUI 8.0 (Oreo) build will be ported to the device. Here’s exactly what a company representative said:
To ensure Honor 8 users also benefit from the latest user experience upgrades, new functions of EMUI 8.0 will be ported to the Honor 8. Further update details will be released within one week.
Huawei has also shared a list of devices for which the Oreo update is being developed, and confusingly, it features Honor 8 as well. Guess we’ll have to wait for one more week, as the rep said, to get more clarity on the matter.
Coming back to the list, other names in it include Honor 7X, Honor 8 Youth Edition, Honor 9, Honor 9 Youth Edition, Honor Note 8, Honor V8, Honor V9, and Honor V10.
