huawei-honor-8_sf_hands-on_01The Huawei Honor 8 was announced back in August and following the device’s announcement, Huawei also revealed that they will be delivering updates to the phone for at least the next two years. This means that users should be able to expect that the phone will be updated to at least two major Android builds.

For those wondering when the first major update is expected to arrive, you’ll be pleased to learn that you won’t have to wait too long for it. Huawei has recently confirmed that the Android 7.0 Nougat update is scheduled to arrive for the Honor 8 come February 2017. No specific dates were mentioned but we guess it’s only a couple of months away so it shouldn’t feel too long.

The update is also expected to introduce EMUI 5.0 onto the Honor 8, which is basically the company’s take on Android that debuted with the Huawei Mate 9. So far Android Central is claiming that the latest version of EMUI feels great, so this is something that Honor 8 users can look forward to as well.

Either way if you own the Honor 8, do check back with us in the coming weeks/months for more specific details on when the update will be released.
