Huawei confirms Oreo update for 9 Honor phones

23 January 2018

Huawei announced which devices will get Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 back in October when the Mate 10 series were launched with the new OS and user interface. Now its subsidiary Honor also published a list of all devices that will get the latest EMUI. Although the upgrade is still in development, we now know it's eventually coming to these nine phones:

Huawei Honor 7X Huawei Honor 8 Huawei Honor V8
Honor 7X Honor 8 Honor V8

Huawei Honor Note 8 Huawei P8 Lite (2017) Huawei Honor 9
Honor Note 8 Honor 8 Lite Honor 9

Huawei Honor 9 Lite Huawei Honor 8 Pro Huawei Honor View 10
Honor 9 Lite Honor 8 Pro/Honor V9 Honor View 10/Honor V10

Although an Honor representative confirmed the update in the Huawei Club online forums, some devices might not get all EMUI 8.0 features due to differences in hardware performance.

There were some rumors about Honor 8 not getting the Oreo update, but 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.

The PR division stays silent if the company will announce the full release schedule for Oreo-based EMUI or just details about the exact functions that will be ported.
