According to Honor USA, the rollout will start on April 30 in North America. Thus, the software will be distributed in Canada and the US before the update appears in other countries. Therefore, users in other countries have to wait for a little.
Nevertheless, the update in Europe is very likely to be available within the next month. As usual, the operating system is delivered in waves to stop the distribution in case of possible errors. For some weeks, the beta version can be downloaded by all European users of the smartphone and installed on the device. If you have not yet signed up for the beta program, you can register on Huawei’s official website. All the further steps are explained there, in order to be able to start the operating system on the Honor 7X. It should be noted, however, that the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo may not be automatically deployed using the OTA process.
Android Oreo brings some new features such as the picture-in-picture mode and a revised notification system with it. In addition, Huawei’s own user interface EMUI will be upgraded to version 8.0. After the update, it is also possible to unlock the Honor 7X using face recognition. This is the case for the devices in the price segment under 300 euros.
