While several Huawei smartphones should receive Android Q after its release, Honor only confirmed the update for the Honor 20 duo until now. However, this limited availability is likely to change in the upcoming days. According to a series of replies made by Honor India on their Twitter handle, Honor 8X and Honor 10 are also among the devices eligible for Android Q update.

The new info also indirectly confirms EMUI 10 arrival for the two handsets. Currently, there is still no information regarding the Android Q availability for the Huawei and Honor smartphones. Of course, it will be soon after the official release of the Android Q by Google that should happen in the next month or towards September.
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.

When it comes to Honor’s mother company, Huawei already confirmed that about 17 handsets will be receiving the EMUI-based Android Q update in the future. These devices are namely:
- P30 Pro
- Huawei Mate 20
- 20 Pro
- PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 20 RS
- P30 lite
- P smart 2019
- Huawei P smart+ 2019

Hopefully, more Honor handsets will be added to the list once that final Android Q becomes available for companies. For now, Honor 8X and 10 owners can rest assured that they’ll have one more year of software support for their handsets.
