The Honor 8 launched with Marshmallow and the Emotion UI skin on top. The skin was a big departure from what folks in the US were used to, but the EMUI 5.0 update promised to change that.
Huawei has announced that the Honor 8 is finally getting its Android 7.0 Nougat update tomorrow February 11, and it’s bringing the new UI with it. It’s been completely changed from the previous skin, with a more stock appearance, an app drawer, and tons of improvements. The beta was a big upgrade, so we’re looking forward to seeing how the final product is.
The update starts rolling out tomorrow, though not everyone will get the update on the first day. Let us know when you do and how you like it!
