    This morning(January 26,2018), JERRY HilHILDENBRAND of Android Central reported that the honor 8 will get Oreo.

    Not real sure based on everything else I have read but just wanted to share it with my fellow honor 8 enthusiasts.

    Huawei didn't outright state oreo. It said emui 8 which XDA-Developers assumed to mean oreo ,which does not necessarily mean oreo. Sites like Android Police took this to mean that honor 8 will get emui 8 BUT will be stuck on nougat. Android Police reached out to Huawei who issued the following statement

    "To ensure Honor 8 users also benefit from the latest user experience upgrades, new functions of EMUI 8.0 will be ported to the Honor 8. Further update details will be released within one week. Please stay tuned and we thank you for your support and interest in Honor."

    Only time will tell I guess.

    I just wish they would give a very clear yes or no. I sometimes hate this straddling the line crap.

    This is very good news. If we cannot get Oreo, then at least get whatever updates EMUI 8.0 give us.

    This would be really awesome to have - even if it's just some features of EMUI 8 and we're still stuck on Nougat - but I've honestly kind of given up hope. Or I've just kind of decided to wait and see and whatever happens, happens.

    When you think about it, they may only be doing this because of their promise retraction. If they never promised Oreo in the first place, then they wouldn't have to be scrambling now to throw Honor 8 owners a bone from wherever they can get it.

    In any case, it would be nice to have a few new features! Thank you for the link!

    This is one of the many reasons why I'm choosing a Pixel as my next phone - timely and regular updates.
