Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, has been the driving force behind Huawei’s recent fortunes in the smartphone business. Today, Honor announced that a couple of its devices will be getting the new EMUI 8 which is designed based on Android Oreo. Honor France confirmed that the company has commenced the official rollout of EMUI 8 to Honor 9 and Honor 8 Pro. However, it should be noted that Honor will update at least eight of its smartphones although some of these devices will only get the EMUI 8’s features without Oreo.
