Previously, Honor revealed that EMUI 80 update is not feasible for the Honor 8 due to hardware and software limitations. It is to be noted that Honor 6X is not on the list and it might not receive the update.

The upcoming Android update will ship with improved features and enhancements not available with the previous counterparts.
Talking about the specifications, the Honor 8 is equipped with a 5.2-inch FHD display, Kirin 950 processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB expandable internal storage powered by a 3000mAh battery. While the rear side features a dual camera comprising of 12MP and 8MP sensors, the front-facing sensor bears an 8MP sensor with LED Flash.
