As with the parent company Huawei, the update development is difficult to predict, as Honor and Huawei are no longer allowed to use Google services on new devices due to the US ban. Instead, you use the open-source AOSP, but cannot use Google applications such as the Play Store, Maps and Co.
New Huawei models no longer receive an Android license due to the US sanctions, which is why the devices are delivered without Google services.
