EMUI 5.0

If you have Honor 8, you have a reason to cheer because EMUI 5.0 UI with Android Nougat will be rolled out from February 10. Even though Honor 8 has a polished hardware, there were problems with the embedded software. With the launch of EMUI 5.0, Honor is gearing up to provide a rich and compelling user experience.

According to sources, Honor is planning to push Android 7.0 Nougat with the improved EMUI 5.0 skin. Talking about the features, Android Nougat provides features such as split-screen multitasking, enhanced standby battery life in addition to several tweaks and minor improvements dubbed to improve overall user experience.

Honor 8 is not the first smartphone to get EMUI 5.0 UI. In 2016, Huawei had rolled out the newly refreshed UI to the Mate 9 flagship smartphone, which got rave reviews from all tech portals because of massive improvement in the overall usage.

When it comes to features, the new EMUI 5.0 provides improvements to the notification shade, settings menu including refinements to several apps.

Huawei will push Android Nougat with EMUI 5.0 to the Honor 8 starting February 10. However, it will take few days for the new update to hit the individual phones. You will view a notification when the update is ready for your handset and the region.

If you don’t have patience, you can manually verify the existence of the update by tapping the settings option. In a statement, Honor disclosed that the update process would complete by the end of February. Meanwhile, the company is gearing up to push the EMUI 5.0 update for the recently launched Honor 6X before the end of Q2 2017.
