Honor confirms 9 smartphones will receive the EMUI 8.0 update (UPDATE)
It's true that EMUI 8.0 is based on Android Oreo, but Honor may also add just some features of the new user interface on the phone, not the full version. Basically, this means that Honor 8's new UI will look like EMUI 8.0, but it will not include Oreo.
In any case, here is the full list of Honor smartphones that have been confirmed to receive EMUI 8.0 in the coming months: Honor 7X, Honor 8, Honor V8, Honor Note 8, Honor 8 Lite, Honor 9, Honor 9 Lite, Honor V9, and Honor V10.
Keep in mind that getting EMUI 8.0 doesn't necessarily means these smartphones will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. Still, we're waiting for Honor to make some clarifications to the statement and we'll update the news if and when we have an answer.
