Currently, some smartphones are coming to the market with a feature that can irritate users: the watermark on the photos captured with the device. This is the case of Mi 6, which shows in the lower left corner of each image taken the phrase “shot on Mi 6”, as you can see in this comparison. Now, joining Xiaomi, Huawei has announced that it will make the same feature available on some of its smartphones.
It is not yet known when Huawei will make this update available for the two smartphones, but that is likely to happen in the coming days. According to what has been revealed, it will arrive via OTA (Over the Air), that is, the owners of Honor 8 or Honor V8 will receive a notification when the update is available.
