Honor 7X confirmed to receive Android Oreo update in the US on April 30
The Honor 7X is one of those decent mid-range smartphones that have been priced pretty low to be more appealing to consumers. Still, it took the Chinese handset maker many months to introduce the Honor 7X in the United States, but when it did, it promised to offer an Oreo update to go with it.

Previous reports pointed Q2 as the timeframe Honor is targeting for the release of Android 8.0 Oreo for Honor 7X. Today, the company confirmed that the Honor 7X will receive the major Android OS update in the United States beginning April 30.

The update includes EMUI 8.0 and possibly the April security patch, but other than that there's nothing else we know about it. Honor 7X owners should get their “Check for updates” buttons ready since starting April 30, Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8.0 should be available for download.

The Honor 7X is available for purchase in the United States for $199. The phone comes in three color options: Black, Blue, and Red. All three colors include 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, which can be further expanded via microSD card.
