Hello people
I've buyed a Honor 8 phone, its fantastic but i have one issue..
When i connect it with my pc "hisuit" says its not frd-l09 or something but VAT-L09
I can't find anything on the internet about the VAT version, i have also 4.1 emui version and the HiCare says its an up-to-date firmware..

Can someone help me with it?

As far as I know, Honor 8 is code-named as "FRD". "VAT" is not code of Honor 8.
So, try to download the latest HiSuite from the official web site of Huawei, and check again, please.

Download size < 0.08 MB. But also Ad-free, Pure & Accurate enough.
The minimalist app is available on Google Play

Hey there.. i found out from the social media coordinator that the VAT version of the phones are a underpowered version of the Honor 8. These are developer phones.. i won one from the Dr. Strange giveaway.
