Huawei has already released the official Android 7.0 Nougat based on the EMUI 5.0 and 4.1 to many of its devices. The Huawei P8 and the P8 Lite are one of them. However, the two devices are now receiving custom ROM support with the latest Lineage OS sources. There are very few phones who have received the official Lineage OS 14.1 build which includes Ascend Mate 2, Honor 4/4X/5X. With this unofficial LOS 14.1 ROM for Huawei P8 (Lite), you can take the devices to latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
As the Lineage ROM comes to P8 as an unofficial build, it incorporates some bugs at the moment. The things which are currently working include Audio, Camera, WiFi, RIL, only SIM 1 with data network, Sensors, Off-mode charging, ADB and MTP file transfer, storage, display, etc. However, the features that are not yet working include Video Recording, SIM 2 Slot, GPS, NFC. With more development and builds, you can expect more things to work. So stay tuned.
