- Honor revealed the list of smartphones to receive an update to EMUI 8.0 and Android 8.0 Oreo.
- The full list includes 10 smartphones, ranging from the older Honor 8 to the more recent Honor V10.
- The EMUI 8.0 update will be faster and smarter than EMUI 5.1.
Earlier this month, Huawei announced the latest version of its in-house smartphone user interface, EMUI 8.0, had started rolling out. Today, its Honor brand revealed which its older and current phones will receive update.
- Honor 7X
- Honor 8
- Honor V8
- Honor Note 8
- Honor 8 Lite
- Honor 9
- Honor 9 Lite
- Honor V9
- Honor V10 (Honor View 10)
As we reported previously, the new Honor V10 (known outside China as the Honor View 10) already comes with EMUI 8.0. The Honor 9 Lite, which recently launched in India, also already has it. There’s no specific timetable for when the other Honor phones on the list will receive the interface update, but they are all expected to receive it sometime in 2018.
EMUI 8.0 is the successor to the earlier EMUI 5.1. The big jump in numbering is due to Huawei wanting to sync up its branding with Google’s Android version numbers. The company claims the new version will not only be faster compared to earlier versions, but also smarter, with advances in AI features. Keep in mind not all of the improvements in EMUI 8.0 will be included with all of the Honor phones on this list, due to hardware restrictions of some older models.
