Oreo 8.0 is the latest version of Android OS which was released by Google few weeks ago. As it happens each year, the new update is currently only available for the Nexus lineup which includes Google Pixel phones too. The other manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei take their time to cook the latest Android 8.0 version according to their taste before making it available for their devices.
Good news for Huawei device owners. If your Huawei phone is running on EMUI 4.0 or above, you can enjoy the exact same look of Android 8.0 Oreo, thanks to a system wide launcher, theme or skin of this latest version.

Before we proceed, check the EMUI version of your Android device using below steps:
- Go to settings app and then About. Check the EMUI version of your device. If it is above 4.0, you may proceed with tutorial.
We also recommend that before you make any significant updates to any device, that you backup any important files that may exist, such as personal photos/videos, business files, text messages, and apps. You should also prepare for the fact that some of your apps may not necessarily work the way that they did before you performed the update. If there are some apps that are critical for your life or business, see if you can check that those apps will continue to work, or that you could possibly revert to your previous operating system if 8.0 doesn’t work for you.
