honor: Honor promises firmware updates for all phones released before April 1, 2021

All Honor smartphones launched before April 2021 will be eligible for firmware updates for the rest of their lifecycle. Honor Finland has confirmed to i>SuomiMobiili.
These include all phones launched before April 1, 2021, even the new Honor 50 series. The date is important as Honor is abandoned Huawei between March and April of this year.
As a reminder, Huawei announced in November last year that it would sell its Honor smartphone business. This allowed Honor to become independent from Huawei and thus escape the sanctions that the US imposed on Huawei.
In addition, Honor continues to support high-end Honor devices with monthly updates. These include Honor 20, 20 Pro and View 20. While the affordable devices are updated every quarter. The list includes- Honor 30, Honor 30 Pro+, Honor 30i, Honor 30S, Honor View 30 Pro, Honor 20e, Honor 20i, Honor 20S, honor 20 Lite, Honor 10i, Honor 9A, Honor 9C, Honor 9S, Honor 10X, Honor 9X lite, Honor 10X lite, Honor 9X Pro, Honor 8A, Honor 8S and Honor 8A Pro.
While Honor promises regular firmware updates for these devices, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re filling up android version upgrades. But they will at least be updated with security patches.
The company also promises to continue support for its older devices in Finland before handing them over to Huawei. “When a consumer contacts us, we always help [them] as far as we can before directing [them] to Huawei Customer Service. We continue to help with matters related to the use of smartphones[…] The aim is to best serve both old and new HONOR consumers,” said Suvi Surenkin, Honor Marketing Director for Finland and the Baltic States. It is not clear whether Honor users in other countries are also eligible for said support.
