Honor 8 Units Are Now Getting Android Nougat Update Worldwide
Last December, it was reported that the Honor 8 smartphone will get its Android Nougat update later in February 2017. But then it was later changed after Huawei Japan announced that by beginning January 16, 2017, all Honor 8 units in Japan will start getting the Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI 5.0, while the units from other countries will probably get it by February.
What's Happening Right Now?
According to the latest reports, the Android 7.0 Nougat update that owners in Japan received is now reported to be rolling out worldwide as well. However, there are two important things that you should know regarding the update.
First, the Android 7.0 Nougat that the Honor 8 units in Japan received and the one for the units worldwide differ in sizes. Well, it is reported that Japan has 1.97 GB, while the worldwide release will have 2.27 GB.
The second thing you should know about: Although Honor 8 owners outside of Japan will also get the Android 7.0 Nougat earlier than expected, it may take a while or probably a few weeks or so to propagate the update to all Honor 8 devices across the world. Regarding which countries outside Japan will get the update first, there is no information about it - for now. So basically, for some Honor 8 owners it could mean that they might be receiving it by February, but hopefully, that won't happen and all Honor 8 units around the world will get it by the end of the month.
When Will I Know When The Update Is Available?
The Android 7.0 Nougat update is being rolled out over-the-air and Honor 8 owners will receive a notification prompting them to download and install it. In case you have not received any, you can manually check it by opening the Setting app, select About Phone, and then tap on Software Update. There you will be able to see if there are any updates for your device that are ready to be downloaded.
What Is In The Update?
According to reports, the update comes with improved system optimizations, stability movements, reworked app versatility, improved performance, and all the other features of Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI 5.0. There are more details regarding the update and will soon be unveiled once Honor publishes its official changelog.
