Users of Huawei Honor 8 Pro in India can now smile as the Chinese tech giant has started rolling out the EMUI 8.0 update after its counterpart in the UK received the same update last week. This is a major update and it comes with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. This update is 2.81GB in size and it comes with the January security patch in addition to a host of changes including a new navigation dock, app shortcuts, smart tips, AI-based optimizations to performance, 3D panorama mode, and more. The update is now available to download OTA but all units will not receive this update at the same time so you may have to exercise some patience.
