Huawei said its Honor 8 smartphone will receive Android 7 Nougat and EMUI 5.0 through an update planned for February 2017. According to Huawei, EMUI 5.0 streamlines the user interface and cuts down on the number of steps needed to reach core functions. The update will also reduce the amount of UI chrome, leaving more room on the screen for content. Huawei will allow people to choose a home screen with or without an app drawer, as well as run multiple profiles (personal, work) and easily switch between them. Further, EMUI 5.0 employs machine learning to analyze and adapt to user behavior over time. On the security front, EMUI 5.0 will allow owners to password protect individual apps. Huawei did not say exactly when the update will be made available. The Honor 8 has been for sale in the U.S. since the summer. It is available online and is sold unlocked.
