Huawei has been testing the EMUI 8.0 Oreo build on all of its flagships including Honor’s since last month in the form of beta update for select users. But now, the Chinese smartphone maker have started seeding out the stable OTA to Honor 9 and Honor V9. To recall, the Huawei Mate 9 series already received the update earlier.
EMUI 8.0 was introduced with the Huawei Mate 10 series which was launched in October. It is based on Android Oreo and has many new features from both Android and Huawei side. This new update is packed with Picture in Picture mode, auto fill, notification channels, new revamped settings app, new notification centre and several others. But, the update does not bring the PC mode which was made available to the Mate 9 series.
To receive the new EMUI 8.0 update, your device must be on the latest build, i.e. B190 for Honor 9 and B208 for Honor V9. In case of beta testers, your device must be on build B322 to receive the update. Hence, update your device to the latest build to receive the EMUI 8.0 Oreo update. As the update is being rolled out via OTA, it might take time to reach every devices. Thus, check for updates in the Settings to trigger the update.
