After releasing the list of Honor phones that will receive the latest EMUI 8.0 software update, Huawei has now announced the list of its own devices that will get the Android Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 update.
The devices from Huawei which will be updated to the latest version of EMUI include Mate 8, Huawei P9, P9 Plus, Nova Youth Edition, Nova 2 and Nova 2 Plus. The company’s recently launched Mate 10 series already runs Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out-of-the-box.
Huawei is currently developing the latest update for these phones and has not yet revealed the timeline to roll out the latest update. We just hope the wait isn’t too long.
The EMUI 8.0 — the successor of EMUI 5.1 — was officially rolled out by the company a couple of weeks ago. The company decided to change the numbering scheme of its Android-based custom skin to sync it with the Android version numbers.
According to the company, EMUI 8.0 is “an avant-garde technological software which is efficient, secure and above all, user-friendly.” It comes with artificial intelligence that makes the software experience smarter and quicker.
The updated version of the operating system comes with features like Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition, Smart Tips, and AI-accelerated language translation, among others. It also brings some artificial intelligence-based capabilities such as resource allocation, context awareness as well as user behaviour or behaviour prediction.
Since the latest custom operating system from Huawei is based on Android Oreo, users will also have access to features like split-screen interface, navigation dock, one-hand operation and smart view. The company had earlier said that it provides faster and smarter phone experience, powered by advanced AI technological features.
