Huawei’s Honor sub-model has been responsible for some awesome items of hardware more than the years, but the software program usually seems to lag powering. Just recently, the Honor 7X released with Nougat when it should really by all rights have experienced Oreo. House owners of the Honor 8 are also having some undesirable Oreo news—they is not going to see Oreo at all. At the very least, this is what Honor’s Indian Twitter account is telling folks.
As recently as late 2017, Huawei/Honor was telling house owners to hang restricted as it seemed into Oreo updates for the Honor 8 series. The Honor 8 Pro and Honor 8 Lite will be having Oreo, but they were being both of those released a little bit later than the typical Honor 8. That cellular phone came with Marshmallow and the horrible EMUI 4.1 skin. It was ultimately current to Nougat and EMUI 5, but that’s what the Lite and Pro experienced from the start out.
we can have an understanding of your worry. On the other hand, we regret to notify you that Honor 8 is not appropriate for Android Oreo update owing to hardware and software program limitations. We usually perform for our buyers and we are actually happy to have you as an Honor buyer. Inconvenience is regretted.

The official Twitter account only delivers the type of vague good reasons you’d expect from front-line buyer services reps. There are “hardware and software program limitations,” you see. If this placement holds in all markets, house owners will have to make do with Nougat. They can at the very least consider them selves blessed they did not get trapped on EMUI 4.1.
