Xiaomi has finally started rolling out the long-awaited Android Oreo update for the Honor 6X users in India. The Android Oreo update 8.0 for Honor 6X is rolling out via OTA update so it might take several days to arrive for every device.
However, if you just don’t want to wait for the OTA update to arrive on your Honor 6X then you can download and install the Android Oreo 8.0 update build BLN-L22HNC675CUSTC675D1B510 (126.96.36.1990) on your Honor 6X manually.
Things to Remember Before You Start
Please take the following steps at Your Own Risk. We will not be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components. I recommend you to always take backup of your phone’s data before making any update. Also, the OTA update will take around 1.7 GB of storage space, so make sure you have enough space before proceeding and your battery charge level is above 50%.
