Download Huawei Mate 8 Android 7.0 Nougat Update (NXT-L09) – Asia

Now it’s time for Huawei mate 8 users to get their hands on the Nougat update. Huawei has finally released the official Android 7.0 Nougat for Huawei Mate 8. The update is rolled out for Asian region for now, I think the tech giant is planning a phase-wise update. This particular update is for the NXT-L09 variant only. The B580 update is packed with the Nougat and Huawei’s own EMUI 5.0 OS. If you haven’t received the update you can install 7.0 Nougat on Huawei Mate 8 from given below guide.

What’s new in this update is the EMUI but with a refreshed interface and easier navigation. Huawei has included an app drawer too in this EMUI 5.0 version. This feature is disabled by default but you can easily turn it on via Settings. Now you can also select different home screen and drawer style, which i think is a very nice improvement considering the previous EMUI versions.

Another big change is the smart CPU management. Your phone learns how you use your phone during the day, and based on your usage pattern it will always keep enough resources free for the app you are going to open. This is done by storage defragmentation and smart CPU management. The data for that is gathered by your recent app usage.  And there is a lot of other changes, therefore don’t hold your horses and install the latest Nougat update. All you gotta do is scroll down a bit, and you’ll have everything you need for the update. Therefore slide down and Download 7.0 Nougat for Huawei Mate 8.
