Huawei launched the mid-range Android smartphone Honor 8X a few months ago. The mid-range smartphone receives EMUI, based on Android Pie in China. Meanwhile, the release of the Honor 8X is confirmed in the US market at the end of December.
The previous X series Honor 6X and Honor 7X are widely regarded as the best smartphone of their generation. Honor is based on the success of Honor 8X. The sources confirmed that 8X is receiving the beta version of the Android Pie update, which is only available in China.
Huawei has started to deploy the EMUI 9 update based on Android Pie for some time now, but this update is limited to flagship devices. Until now, Honor 8X and China users are receiving Android 9.0 Pie update (EMUI 9 update) and are very hopeful that their devices will get stable version of Android Magpie during the first quarter of the year to come. 2019.
At first glance, this Android update looks pretty interesting and at the same time, it's impressive compared to the previous year's Honor 7X update. Honor 7X has not received any beta updates until March 2018, but the downside is that Honor 7X had only received Android Oreo by the end of May.
Given that the Honor 8X receives a sweet and creamy taste from the Android Pie update, nonetheless, the Honor smartphone users much more powerful, Honor 8X Max, are left dead of joy. Plus, the reason why Honor 8X Max was left out could be because 8X Max is powered by a mid-range Sn6dragon 636 SoC while Honor 8X is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC. The HiSilicon Kirin chipset is developed and distributed by Huawei. The HiSilicon Kirin chipset will have the upper hand on the Snapdragon chipset with regards to the Android update. However, Honor 8X Max can get the updated Android Pie (EMUI 9) after the Honor 8X.
