Want to Beta Test EMUI 5.0 (Nougat) on the Honor 8?

You might have already seen the next version of EMUI, version 5.0, on the Mate 9 announced by Huawei recently. That same software is coming soon to Honor’s flagship, the Honor 8. We have 55 slots open to anyone with an FRD-L04 version of the Honor 8, and another 10 slots for those with the FRD-L02 model. You can tell which model you have by looking on the back of your Honor 8 under the Honor logo. Here’s an overview of what’s new:

Key features:

  • Simpler user interface: a brand new user interface design, comprising blue and white inspired by the color of Aegean Sea; a simplified interface system with an easy three-step-operation for over 90% of the time.
  • Improved performance: smoother system responsiveness enables quicker browsing in all activities.
  • A more secure system: strengthened security over user privacy, mobile payment and communication, and app usage.
