Not long after the new Android version for the Huawei Mate 8 surfaced online, the Honor 8 owners who are part of the Nougat beta program receive the new firmware that integrates EMUI 5.0.

Android 7.0 Nougat is slowly rolling out to multiple devices, including the HTC 10 (only in Europe for now), OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and others. The Android Nougat Beta for Huawei Mate 8 has been recently spotted online with EMUI 5.0 included, and now the time has come for the smaller Huawei Honor 8 to receive the same treatment.

Recently, Huawei entered a partnership with XDA to start its Android Nougat Beta program. Now, all those who are part of the program and use the Honor 8 smartphone should get ready to receive the EMUI 5.0-skinned Android Nougat Beta firmware. According to the official release notes, "The interface is simple and smart, and EMUI 5.0 comes with enhanced, powerful performance that allows mobile phones to operate more smoothly." The update has 2 GB in size and also offers various functional optimizations.

Huawei claims that thanks to the EMUI 5.0 interface, most apps can be reached within three actions. Those who are looking for a new Android Nougat-powered Huawei smartphone can already acquire the Mate 9.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
