old honor emui update

In the past week, Huawei rolled out a new software update for the legendary devices. However, there are some old Honor devices in the bag that are now also receiving the latest EMUI update.

Honor Play 8A, Honor 9i, Honor 9 Youth Edition, and Honor Play 7X are getting new EMUI versions. To be mentioned, these phones are from Chinese models but failed to make a place in the HarmonyOS upgrade device list.

However, phones are still getting new firmware upgrades with the latest improvements. In the newest edition, Honor phone users are getting the new Petal Light application along with February 2022 security patch.

Yes, the security patch is a bit outdated but it’s better that the company is installing a new EMUI update rather than doing nothing on these old Honor phones.
