We already know what to expect from the new Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 firmware thanks to a HUAWEI’s recent beta program for the two 2017 flagships.

As well as standard Oreo features like Picture-in-Picture mode, notification dots, and much more, the update also brings with it a floating navigation dock, AI-based optimizations, and a host of other tweaks and cosmetic changes to HUAWEI’s custom UI.

Judging by screenshots posted by Facebook users (below), the update brings the build number up to for the dual-SIM international model of both the standard P10 (VTR-L29) and the larger P10 Plus (VKY-L29). It also includes the Android security patches for February.

The P10 rollout follows the arrival of EMUI 8.0 on the US version of the Mate 9 in late February. HUAWEI’s sub-brand HONOR has also deployed Oreo for several devices – including the HONOR 9 and 8 Pro – in select regions. HONOR 7X users will also be glad to hear that the Chinese company has officially kicked off its Oreo beta program for the mid-range phone.
