    So if you own either of these smartphones, you would receive the Android O update by the end of this year. That being said, the roll-out for the Android 8.0 Oreo update for Honor 6X could be delayed and happen in early 2018.

    The Honor 6X was originally launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, but currently, it runs on Android Nougat. While the Honor 8 Pro came pre-installed with Android Nougat.

    Well if you wondering, the Android Oreo will bring along a slew of new features which include icon shapes, dots for notifications, more security options, an auto-fill fill service, smart text selection, and a picture-in-picture mode.

    In addition, your device's battery performance and overall user experience will improve as well.
