Honor previously sighted “hardware and software limitations” as reason for not rolling out Android 8.0 based EMUI 8.0 for the Honor 8 smartphones in January 2018.

Among Chinese smartphone makers, Huawei and its e-brand Honor have a better record in terms of software rollout compared to other OEMs, but unfortunately for Honor 8 the update has come so late (almost after 2 years). The first dual-rear camera smartphone from Honor – the Honor 8 – was launched in October 2016 in India. Similar to the company s flagship Huawei P9, the Honor 8 dual-rear camera too featured a combination of RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor.

The camera also had a dual LED flash, hybrid auto-focus, and laser autofocus for short range and depth focus for long range. On the software front, the smartphone was launched with Huawei s EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
