Android Oreo for the Huawei Mate SE is now available

The Chinese tech giant has spread its reach across the Asian market for years now, which was cemented with the release of Huawei Honor 7X a few months ago.

Huawei chose to upgrade the specs sheet on the mid-range device and release it into the Western market back in March under the Huawei Mate SE brand name. After releasing the Android 8.0 Oreo powered EMUI 8.0 for the Honor 7X last month, the company is now releasing the same for its Western sibling.
