Huawei commits to at least two years of security updates for the Honor 8
So, you don’t like EMUI’s home screen? That’s fine. Just throw on a launcher. But you can’t do much about anything else from the drop down shade to the power prompts to all the little iOS-like interfaces.
It’s everything you can’t get rid of without some rooting and flashing and shucking and jiving. And there hasn’t been a reason not to — software support has traditionally been scant for Huawei and Honor phones, save for the major updates. Even then, it’s been a hit or miss deal.
Well, Taylor Wimberly, one of Honor US’s web marketers, has given us a reason to stick to EMUI 4 (maybe going into 5). He wrote up a Google+ post on a new update policy that will see new features and fixes in OTAs coming down once a quarter for the first year and “in a timely manner” for the second year.
“Beyond this period we will continue to provide updates in respnse to any threats to user safety and security,” Wimberly said.
Some Nexus juice may have been infused into Honor’s coffee today.
