Huawei’s Honor brand launched the Honor 6X smartphone for the global market running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with the company’s old EMUI 4.1 skin on top of it. Soon after the release of the smartphone, many users have been wondering whether it will receive Android 7.0 Nougat and EMUI 5.0 update. At the CES 2017 event meet, the company confirmed the Nougat update and stated that it will be rolled out somewhere in the second quarter of the year.
However, the users will be really happy to hear that the company will soon roll out Android 7.0 Nougat based on EMUI 5.0 as early as this March. This news was shared officially by Huawei to Android Police.
In a statement to Android Police, Huawei said:
The new EMUI for Honor 6X will be arriving next month, and it’s been updated based on consumer feedback. In case you or your team is planning a full review any time soon, it might be worthwhile to wait!
The EMUI 5.0 update for Honor 6X might not bring all the features available in the Mate 9 as the Honor 6X is only updated based on consumer feedback. But nevertheless, the update brings Nougat 7.0 software to the smartphone.
Stay tuned as we’ll update with download links and complete flashing guide once the ROM is officially released.
