While it was earlier announced to be coming on February 10, Huawei has now confirmed that the Nougat update for the Honor 8 smartphone will actually start rolling out a day later, i.e, on February 11.
The announcement came in the form of a tweet from the US subsidiary of the Chinese company:

EMUI 5.0 is coming to Honor 8 from Feb 11th! Check out the new App Drawer on EMUI 5! Excited? http://gph.is/2kS4gUa
As is usually the case with OTA roll outs, it may take time for the update to hit your device, so you need to keep patience. It is expected that all Honor 8 units in the US will get the update by the end of the month.
