Honor 8X global variant receiving Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update

Sagar, 23 March 2019

Earlier this month, Honor released an Android Pie-based EMUI 9 update for the 8X in China. Now the company has begun rolling out this update for the phone's global variant.

This Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0.1 update weighs a whopping 3.14GB in size and brings along improved sound recorder, faster app launch times, simplified UI, and Huawei Share 3.0 to the 8X. It is currently rolling out in Macedonia, but we expect a wider rollout soon.

Last week Honor confirmed it would release Android Pie for the 8X in India starting on March 18, but we haven't heard anything on that later. The company has said that it plans to release the update in batches this month so we expect the Indian units to get an update notification anytime now.
