Honor 8 Pro and Honor 6X expected to receive Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of 2017


Honor 8 Pro is one of the most recent high-end smartphones launched by the Chinese company, so it's no surprise it will be updated to a new version of Android. However, it's great that Honor is thinking to update mid-range smartphones launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board to the latest Oreo operating system.

Honor 6X and Honor 8 Pro will receive the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update by the end of the year. The former might get the update in early 2018, but that shouldn't bother anyone who purchased the smartphone.

Apparently, there was a meetup in New Delhi, India, where fans of the Honor brand got to meet the company's officials and ask questions about new and old devices. During the meetup, Honor confirmed that these two smartphones will certainly be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo at some point in the coming months.

We're also expecting Honor 8 and Honor 9 to receive the update, although we're waiting for the Chinese company to provide us with a timeline. Also, availability of the update is likely to depend on region, so some might receive the new Android 8.0 Oreo update much earlier than others.
