Android Oreo with EMUI 8 Rolling out to the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 Lite
Most China-based smartphone manufacturers embark on two types of software upgrades: Updates to the custom Android skins that run on top of Android, and upgrades to the underlying Android version. Huawei is planning to refresh both on the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9i, Honor 7X, and Honor 8 Lite — they’ll all be getting Emotion UI 8.0, the newest version of its Android skin, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
Huawei claims that EMUI 8.0 — the successor to EMUI 5.1 — has artificial intelligence that makes the software experience smarter and quicker. It has features like Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition, Smart Tips, and AI-accelerated language translation, and it lets users reach 90 percent of its core functions in just a tap.
“The upgraded EMUI 8.0 is avant-garde technological software which is efficient, secure and above all, user friendly,” a Huawei R&D spokesperson told Android Authority. “Eradicating lag, they can witness a faster and smarter phone experience, powered by advanced AI technological features. The update significantly cuts down on the number of steps needed to achieve the desired function through its smart applications like navigation dock and smart screen, and enables the user to reach 90% of the core functions in just a single-click. We have developed the EMUI 8.0 for those who live and work on-the-go.”
