Honor USA awaits Google’s clarification for Nougat update rollout. Wait, what?

Whoever is handling the Honor USA’a twitter account is clearly misunderstood about the process of Android 7.0 Nougat release, or any other update release for that matter. The account recently replied to a query from Honor 8 user asking about Nougat availability, revealing that they await info from Google on Nougat availability timings.

It seems that the update is ready with them — it should be, as Honor 8 Nougat beta is available in India — but they are awaiting instructions from Google to hit the release button. Neither Honor 8 is a Nexus device, nor Google has anything to do with the Honor 8 Nougat OTA release, so what is going on?

Here’s exactly what Honor 8 twitter handle had to say:

We’re excited about the Android 7.0 update, and will share more info once Google clarifies timing for general availability. Ty!
