The Honor 10 may be getting a global launch soon but that doesn’t mean past Honor flagships have been forgotten. The Honor 8 Pro (Honor V9) and Honor 9 were both upgraded to Oreo back in February. The former has also received a new update.
The February update was supposed to bring Face Unlock to the phone but it didn’t. The new update addresses that and also brings some new features.
Apart from the new unlocking mode, there is also a privacy feature for hiding notifications on the lock-screen and March’s security patch included in the update.
The update is about 500MB in size and is said to be rolling out in batches according to the Honor India Twitter page.
The Honor 8 Pro was released last year. It has a 5.7” QHD display, up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It is powered by the Kirin 960, has dual rear cameras, and packs a 4,000mAh battery.
