    I'll say yes since honor/Huawei allowed the 5X to unlock the bootloader.
    Check XDA...

    Edit:
    I checked for you it's a go:
    Unlocking bootloader and rooting your Honor … | Honor 8

    Just curious what you need root for? The honor 8 has a lot of customizations available without root

    I see no need to root this thing.

    What would rooting and re-romming accomplish?
    A different ROM might actually ruin the phone.

    True...
    Will the fps and smart key features still work after root?

    That would depend on the rom. But in theory it could.

    Please note that if you root your phone you will be voiding the warranty in place for the device. (NS)

    Wouldn't someone just be able to put back stock software and then send it in for warranty?
