Update [April 30, 2018]: As promised, the Honor USA team has begun rolling out Oreo for the Honor 7X in the US. The update also brings the Face Unlock feature to all Honor 7X users in the country, but an upgrade to Android 8.0 remains the highlight feature of the update. With Android Oreo, you get new features like Autofill, Notification dots, Notification snooze, picture-in-picture, redefined Settings app, revamped notifications center, etc.

The Oreo update for the Honor 7X also carries the April security patch, but another cool feature that is part of the update has to be the new Navigation dock, that allows users to interact with the phone with a floating icon/dock on the screen. Your Honor 7X should be more responsive after the update, and faster too, while Huawei is also adding a Game suite to the device with the Android 8.0 OTA.

Update [May 15, 2018]: Honor India has also confirmed that Android 8.0 Oreo is now available in India as an OTA. Typically, this should take a few days before every Honor 7X unit gets the OTA notification. To skip the long wait, you may try a manual update by heading to your phone’s Settings > About phone > Software update.
