Honor 7X to get EMUI 8.0 (based on Android Oreo 8) in May

Smartphone Deals on Jumia

Honor made the Honor 7X their midrange offering for this year, making the smartphone with a very remarkable build and selling it for a steal of a price. At the time of launch, the device was running the EMUI 5.1 from the parent company (Huawei).

That adaptation was based on the Android 7.0 Nougat, but we have been expecting them to at least, roll out an update to Oreo for the smartphone.

If you have also been thinking along this line, there is good news for us all – sometimes in May of this year, Huawei will roll out EMUI 8.0 and a bump to Android Oreo to their Honor 7X.

It is stated that this news has already been confirmed by Honor officials who are working hard to ensure a stable build is rolled out by the intended calendar time.

Alongside a push to Oreo, EMUI 8.0 brings on board a slew of cool features such as support for AI. With the improved AI, user behaviour can easily be predicted to make the phone better, smarter and faster during use.

The update will also make sure the RAM is constantly shredded to keep the processes lean, leading to an overall faster process. In all, what we are saying is that your device will lag less once you make this jump.

For now, signups are invited to try out the stable builds and walk hand-in-hand with the developers when the update first rolls out. There are 20,000 slots available so you will want to get in fast if you want to be considered at all.

However, we think this is only possible for the Honor 7X units running on the Chinese ROM. Those with the Global version of the smartphone do not have such an option, but beta testers should be able to get it first.
