The Honor 8 was an awesome budget phone, but its future software support is currently in limbo. Different representatives from different parts of the globe have made claims on the Android Oreo update for the device, but chances are good that it will be receiving Oreo.
Fortunately, Honor France has posted that the Honor 8 (and the Honor 7X) will be receiving Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top in Q2 of 2018. The Honor 8 Pro and Honor 9 are also receiving their Oreo updates as of today.
The device isn’t out of the woods yet, as there is a lot of misinformation and potential for certain regional updates to go out and other regions to get screwed over. Nonetheless, there is hope. We just wish that Honor would up its game with software support and communication between regional divisions.
