The good news to Huawei fans: Honor 8 Nougat update with EMUI 5.0 begins rolling out globally. Previously, the handset received the update in Japan.
The update for Honor 8 weighs in at around 2.27GB, which is slightly bigger than the Japanese one that weighs in at around 1.97GB. So, ensure you have enough storage before trying to upgrade. According to Huawei, along with the usual Android Nougat features, the global update comes with stability improvements, system optimizations, and better app versatility. Not stopping there, the update includes the new EMUI 5.0 that arrives with Huawei’s machine learning feature. The feature will prioritize the apps you use frequently to optimize processing resources. With EMUI 5.0, the phone will run different user profiles, which makes it much easier to switch between work profile and more personal profile.
It’s worth noting that the Nougat update for Honor 8 arrives via OTA, so you should get a notification when it’s available for download. You, of course, can also manually check for it.
To whom it may concern, the Honor 8 is a successor of Honor 7 and is positioned in the upper mid-range smartphone segment.
The Honor 8 has the dual glass panel design which is admittedly reminiscent of the Galaxy S7. Powered by HiSilicon Kirin 950 chipset, the handset features 5.2-inch full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB via a microSD card. The Honor 8 comes with a 12MP dual-camera configuration with an aperture of f/2.2, laser autofocus, and dual-LED flash. It also includes an 8MP front-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.4 aperture and 1.4 µm pixel size.
The Honor 8 is backed by a non-removable 3,000mAH battery, and is available in Pearl White, Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, and Gold colors.
