Honor 8 will not receive the Android 8.0 Oreo, the company has confirmed. This information came from the official Twitter account of Honor India. The company confirmed this when it replied to a user’s tweet. The reason behind not extending the update to the Honor 8 is some ‘hardware and software limitations’.
The tweet by Honor read, “We can understand your concern. However, we regret to inform you that Honor 8 is not compatible for Android Oreo update due to hardware and software limitations. We always work for our customers and we are really glad to have you as an Honor customer. Inconvenience is regretted.”
However, the company has confirmed that the phone will receive security patches from time to time. The Honor 8 Pro will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update and is already undergoing various tests.
