Shortly after Huawei kicked off the roll-out of Android Oreo update for the Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9, the Chinese company confirmed two other smartphones are getting the update starting today - Honor 9 and Honor V9. It's not an open beta at the moment - Huawei says it's capping the number of enrollees, and that it's a first-come, first serve deal - but if you manage to get in, you'll get an over-the-air update to EMUI 8.0 version B323.
In addition to the Oreo goodies, the update also bring EMUI version 8.0 B334 to both phones. The beta program is now live and will run until November 3.
If you're the proud owner of a Honor 9 or the Honor V9 and willing to give the Oreo update a go, you'll need to sign up via Huawei's Member Service application.
