Huawei appears to be taking the smartphone industry very seriously and is working hard to make it known. Various sources have so far pointed out that Huawei has plans to release the Android Marshmallow update to its Honor line-up of devices. It is a little ironic considering the fact that it’s flagship device, the Huawei Mate 8 wasn’t released with the latest version of software out of the box, but Huawei is making up for it.
Huawei Honor 7 users in the UK will probably be the first device to receive the EMUI 4.0 on top of Android 6 Marshmallow. Users who cannot wait can enroll themselves into the Beta testing program where they can experience the early release version of the update.
The procedure for upgrade should as simple as an OTA (over the air) update and should not require any flashing or modding of ROMS. This is just a pre-release version, except some bugs and broken functionalities. But Huawei states that updates, patches and fixes would be regularly pushed in the form of OTA update packages to ensure smooth performance.
So far, things appear to be going great for Huawei and now that it has gained some support of the developers and the trust of users through the launch of a Nexus device, we hope to see more quality devices and regular updates cycle from the tech giant.
