The EMUI 8.0, already available on Honor View 10, will be rolled out on devices such as Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X and Honor 8 Lite soon.

"The update significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function through its smart applications like navigation dock and smart screen. It enables the user to reach 90 percent of the core functions in a single-click," Huawei said in a statement.

The custom OS engages in low-memory management by allocating resources in a way to provide more space to ensure holistic experience coupled with AI capabilities.

EMUI 8.0 has features like smart resolution, dynamic wallpaper, navigation bar customisations and more.

The upcoming Honor 9 Lite will also run the updated OS.
