Huawei’s CEO has confirmed to a source that two of the company’s year-old Honor devices will indeed be updated to Google’s Oreo software. We’re talking about the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro.
The news comes from Honor CEO, George Zao, who spoke in an interview with Mondo.rs. He confirmed that the update for Honor 8 smartphones is being worked on by the company, and that more Honor phones will see the update down the road such as the Honor 7X.
This is good news for those of you with any of these smartphones. It’s also a good sign that the company is working hard to keep their devices up to date with the latest software in the mobile industry. The software will be made available with EMUI 8.0, the latest version of the company’s UI skin. Some of the major additions from Google include new notifications, performance and battery improvements by further restricting background data, picture-in-picture mode, new adaptive icons, and system-wide auto-fill.
