Huawei’s been testing Android Oreo on various of its devices. With the launch of Mate 10, in October, came EMUI 8.0 with a set of new features and user interface. Now Honor, Huawei’s online brand has published a list of devices that will get the Android Oreo update.
Oddly enough, the list also has Honor 8 mentioned in it. This is inspite of a confirmation from Honor India on Twitter that the phone wouldn’t be getting Android Oreo. Although the upgrade is still in development but here’s the list of 9 devices which will be getting the taste of Oreo –
- Honor 7X
- Honor 8
- Honor 8 Youth Edition
- Honor 9
- Honor 9 Youth Edition
- Honor Note 8
- Honor V8
- Honor V9
- Honor V10
On the Honor 8, the Honor PR Department stated:
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. Please stay tuned and we thank you for your support and interest in Honor.
It seems like Honor 8 will stay on Nougat but will get the features of EMUI 8.0 ported to it in lieu of an update to EMUI 8.0 on Android Oreo. The full release schedule for Oreo-based EMUI hasn’t been released yet.
