Huawei's Honor 8 is expected to get Android Oreo 8.0 with the EMUI 8.0 update soon. The company on its Chinese website has listed the names of the smartphones that will get EMUI 8.0 and Android 8.0 Oreo update and Honor 8, which was launched more than a year ago, has also been included in the list.
According to a report on XDADevelopers, the smartphone was expected to get the Android 8.0 Oreo update, but a recent tweet by Honor India mentioned that the smartphone is not capable of handling Android Oreo because of its 'Hardware and software limitations'. But, as it's capable of running Android 8.0 Oreo and the smartphone has also been spotted in the smartphone list on the Chinese website, we should expect to see an update soon.
Huawei recently unveiled EMUI 8.0 based on the Android 8.0 Oreo OS. The company recently announced that the Honor View 10 comes with the OS and other smartphones including Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X and Honor 8 Lite will get the update soon. The EMUI 8.0 promises to boost productivity with the help of Artificial Intelligence capabilities.
The Honor 8 was launched as a flagship device by Huawei in 2016. The smartphone was launched with a price tag of Rs 29,999 and came with 5.2-inch LTPS display with a resolution of 1,920x1,080 pixels.
