Huawei has finally unveiled the timeline on when the Huawei Honor 8 will be getting Google’s latest Android OS – Nougat. Android Nougat 7.0 with EMUI 5.0 running on top will be coming to Honor 8 devices starting February, with beta-testing currently underway according to a GizOK report.

Honor's EMUI changelog follows:
1, Ability to run different profiles in parallel - switch effortlessly between their professional and personal lives.
2, Machine learning enables EMUI 5.0 to dynamically optimize processing resources by analyzing the user's behaviour over time and prioritizing frequently used apps.
3, EMUI 5.0 comes with improved capabilities and flexibility around security. For example, the user can ensure specific apps stay ultra-secure with such features as App Lock.
4, EMUI 5.0 also features a more intelligent power management system, with a selection of power saving modes so you can manage your device's battery consumption more easily.

In fact, improving the quality of the Huawei Honor 8 with the Android Nougat update is extremely important to provide customers an incredible phone before the Huawei P9 and Huawei Mate 9 gets to America. Considering that Huawei´s main objective is to beat Apple in order to become the second smartphone maker in the world, this move seems pretty clever.
