After the whole Huawei fiasco with the US government, Honor has confirmed that it will be updating the Honor 8X and Honor 10 to Android’s latest version, Android Q later in the year. Hence, while Huawei has reportedly been working on a homegrown smartphone OS, the development of EMUI 10 based on Android Q appears to be going on in full swing too.
As per Honor India’s Twitter handle, it said, “Thank you for showing your interest for Android Q. We would like to inform you that our software team has already evaluated and confirmed the compatibility of Android Q upgrade with Honor 10,” in reply to a query. The Honor 10 was launched last year with EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo and eventually updated to EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9 Pie last year.
The Twitter handle posted a similar reply to a query about the Honor 8X update. It said, “Thank you for showing your interest for Android Q. We would like to inform you that our software team has already evaluated and confirmed the compatibility of Android Q upgrade with Honor 8X.” To recall, Honor 8X was launched with EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo last year. However, it went on to get the Android Pie update earlier this year, and now it looks like the device will get the next major Android update as well.
In the meantime, the Honor 7X, which was launched in 2017, may finally start receiving the Android Pie update in August. In reply to a query about the Honor 7X, the company replied, “Thank you for reaching out to us. We would like to inform you that our software team has confirmed the compatibility of device with EMUI 9.0/Android Pie and expected to be released the final version of EMUI 9.0/Android Pie tentatively by end of July 2019."
