Honor, a Huawei sub-brand, has began an Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta test for users in the UK territory. The sign up for beta testers is only open to select Honor devices with the likesof Honor 4X, Honor 6 and the Honor 6 Plus. Owners of these handsets currently residing in the UK regions can participate in the Android 6.0 beta test by registering at Honor's official signup page. The only details required for registration include the handset's IMEI number, and the build number of the current firmware on your device. This January, HTC began rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the One M9 for users in Canada. The update was released by SaskTel, Rogers, Wind and Videotron carriers. On the other hand, owners of the HTC One M8 on the Sprint carrier in the US have started receiving the update, whereas on January 25, the update is scheduled to reach HTC One M8 devices on the T-Mobile carriers. Unfortunately, it was confirmed by HTC that the HTC One M7 is not slated to receive the Android Marshmallow update as it is now past two years old and thus beyond the update timeline. As for the update to the Google Play Edition HTC handset variants, there original designation as the devices second in line to the Nexus handsets to give users a pure Android experience, has slowly been dying down. But fortunately, with this update news from HTC, there is still some hope.
