Android Version Update

While the Honor 90 and Honor X9b initially came with Android 13, Honor has yet to release the Android 14 update for these models. In contrast, Samsung has already rolled out the Android 14 update for the majority of its eligible devices.

Future Android 14 Update

According to Seth's statement to The Mobile Indian, the Honor 90 and Honor X9b are anticipated to receive the Android 14-based Magic OS 8.0 update in the second quarter of 2024. Despite this, these Honor devices are not expected to receive the major OS update this month, in March.


With the Android 15 Developer Preview already available and Honor lagging behind in releasing Android 14 for a few of its phones in India, it is imperative for Honor to expedite the provision of OS updates for its smartphones to ensure user satisfaction and keep pace with the rapidly evolving Android ecosystem.
