Honor 8 Pro Started Receiving EMUI 8.0 Update Based on Android 8.0 Oreo in India

Huawei started rolling out the EMUI 8.0 update to the Honor 8 Pro last week. The update was initially launched for users in UK and France but is now rolling out in India as well. Being a major update, EMUI 8.0 is 2.81GB in size and brings with it a bunch of changes, most importantly the jump to Android 8.0 Oreo. It carries the build number DUK-L09 8.0.0.310. Also included in the update is Google’s January security patch.

Your Honor 8 Pro will likely receive a push notification for EMUI 8.0 OTA update, just select it and you would be taken to a download page. Before proceeding with the update, make sure there is at least 3GB of free space on your device.

It is also recommended to download the update over Wi-Fi and backup all of your personal data, including phone book, text messages, emails etc. in advance. In case you haven’t received the update notification on your Honor 8 Pro yet, we recommend checking for the update manually by heading over to the Settings Menu. As always the update could take some days before landing on your device because it’s an incremental rollout.

The EMUI 8.0 update brings important improvements to the Honor 8 Pro including VoLTE support for Vodafone and Jio users in India. There are some cosmetic changes to EMUI, a better system stability and an optimised battery life. New AI features like automatic photo scene detection, instant translation, and automatic UI optimisation have been added.

Besides these, the update obviously brings the most important stock features included in the Android Oreo. These new features such are a new navigation bar, app shortcuts, Picture-in-Picture mode, Private Space, and Smart Tips.

Huawei promised other handsets such as the Honor 7X, Honor 8 Lite, and Honor 9i are also expected to receive the update shortly. The newly launched Honor View 10 and Honor 9 Lite already come with EMUI 8.0 out of the box. Honor France team already confirmed that the Honor 7X and Honor 8 will receive the update in Q2 2018, and by then Google will be releasing Android P Developer Preview too.

After updating honor 8 Pro with emui 8 I observed crash more than twice for the first time. I didn’t experience crash issue with previous emui version.
Also many useful features are removed from EMUI 8. floating dock is replaced with navigation dock. In this, soft keys to lock the screen and clear recent apps are removed. Now every time you want to turn the screen off, you have to use the hard key.

The old feature should have been retained.
