Honor 8, Honor 8 Pro to receive Android 8.0 update soon


Huawei’s Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro are both highly acclaimed devices from 2017. Both the devices, however, still run Android 7.1 Nougat. That, however, will no longer be the case if we are to believe recent reports.

Huawei is reportedly planning to issue an update to both these handsets to upgrade them both to Android 8.0 Oreo. The news of both these handsets being upgraded to Android 8 Oreo was confirmed by none other than the CEO of Huawei George Zao in a recent interview. According to PhoneArena. Mr Zao was speaking to a Serbian online media where he revealed that Honor has started internal beta testing Android Oreo for both these devices.

It is pertinent to note that other high-end devices bearing the Huawei badge including the Mate 9 and the Mate 9 Pro along with the Honor 9 and the Honor V9 are also scheduled to get their respective updates to Android 8.0 Oreo. Another device that is also scheduled to get the Oreo treatment is the Honor 7X – the entry-level smartphone from the company that was only recently launched in India.

According to to the report, several other handsets from both Huawei and Honor are scheduled to get the official update for Android 8.0 Oreo. He did not reveal what those devices were.
