Nougat update coming soon to Huawei Mate 8
Huawei Mate 8 has been around for a year now, but this 6-inch phablet is still stuck with the operating system it had at launch, namely Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Now, it looks like the long-awaited Android Nougat update is almost ready for deployment.
Although Huawei did not make an official announcement yet, one XDA member known as somboons claims he bumped into the Nougat firmware for the Mate 8 phablet on Huawei's servers. This is most likely a work-in-progress build, but those adventurous enough can take it for a spin already. As always, installing and running such software can be quite risky, so be careful to backup everything first, then pay attention to the instructions while doing it.
Unfortunately, there is no official launch date for this update yet, but we will keep you posted. Since Huawei had this update on its servers, the final version will probably arrive by the end of the year.
