Honor 8X hasn’t been around for a long time, but the device is already receiving a second software update that bumps the version to EMUI 126.96.36.199.
Looking at the firmware version, the update is rolling out to the Indian version of the Honor 8X and as expected, it brings along a new Android security patch for the month of November 2018. It’s only this week that the December patches started hitting the Pixels, which means the 8X could get this update next year.
Besides the improved security patch level, the update also fixes audio sync issue with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video and also updates the Honor Club app to the latest version.
The new update has just started arriving on the Honor 8X and being an OTA rollout, it will take some time before all units get the download notification. You can either wait for it or try forcing the update via the software update menu in the settings, but make sure you have a stable WI-Fi connection because the update weighs in at 554MB.
The Honor 8X is on the list of devices to receive EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie, with the beta version expected to arrive in India before the end of this month.
