Honor 7X starts its update to Android 8.0 Oreo with support for Project Treble and facial recognition

The Honor 7X is one of the new mid-range with 18: 9 screen, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. A mobile phone with a good quality-price that can be purchased for just over 200 euros.

However, he had a problem and that is that his software was still anchored in a version of Android. Now, about six months after its release Honor announces that it is starting to release the expected update to Android 8.0 Oreo for the Honor 7X.

This update to Android 8.0 Oreo is now available via OTA for users of an Honor 7X from the United States, opening the door to other markets in the coming weeks.

In fact, the versions of Spain, Italy, France and Germany have since March access to the beta FUT (Friendly User Test).

Now, those who have waited, for the stable version will be able to start upgrading their Honor 7X devices to Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8.0, a version that has improved stability and added several improvements such as a new dock, a redesign in the settings, a recycle bin for the gallery, link to two bluetooth devices and facial unlocking, a security measure that was already announced that would eventually reach the Honors 7X .

Another innovation of this update to Android 8.0 Oreo is that according to XDA-Developers , the 7X Honors receive support for Project Treble, thus allowing to easily install generic ROMs based on AOSP such as LineageOS 15.

An update that has been slow to arrive but we recommend installing at the time it is available where all the advantages of Oreo and facial recognition are added, a novelty that many mid-range are promoting and that the Honor 7X did not have.

Now with this update the Honor 7X improves one of its weaker sections as was the software.
