Honor 8X Android 9 Pie update
- EMUI 9.0 beta available in China
- Beta testing comes to India
Huawei Honor 8X users in India can now download and install EMUI 9.0 beta based on Android 9 Pie on their devices. For this to happen, though, one must go through the company’s Beta APK to submit their interest.
The Honor 7X received its first major OS update, Android Oreo, in April 2018. With the Honor 8X Pie beta version already here, the stable version will for sure be here at about the same time or a little earlier.
