Huawei / Honor

The Honor 6X had planned upgrade to Android Nougat during March but two months later in early May, finally, he is getting the update reports GMSArena . The device that was released earlier this year during the CES of Las Vegas came with Android Marshmallow, something negative for a device released after Nougat took 6 months released.

The well-known Chinese manufacturer took out the Mate 9 with Android 7.0 native Nougat and has received some updates but none has brought Android 7 .1.1. The  Hawai P9  and P9 Plus have already received Nougat in Europe and their partners  Mate 8 , Nova and Nova Plus should upgrade to  Android 7.0 Nougat with version 5.0 of EMUI during the first quarter of 2017.

The Huawei P9 Lite also planned to update the first quarter of the year but in the absence of a few days to expire the deadline Huawei delays the upgrade to the second quarter of the year. The reason for postponing the upgrade is that they had problems during the beta test phase of the P9 Lite. Users who participated in the program were not entirely satisfied with the results and the little autonomy that had been cut in several hours, as reported by the unofficial media huawei.blog .

At the moment the brand has only confirmed that Nougat officially receive the following devices: Honor 5C and  Honor 8, which by the way already has begun to receive it. There remain for the moment the Honor 7 and the Honor 5X.
