During an event last week at Berlin, the sub-brand to Huawei, Honors, gave the confirmation that they’d be launching the beta for the approaching update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This update will roll out to several Honor 7 devices in the weeks that will proceed after 2016 kicks in.

What remains unclear, however, is when the remaining range of devices will receive their roll out. A tweet on the sub-brand’s Indian account has unveiled that the mass roll out of updates will commence in next year’s February.

The beta is set to be launched later on this month. It will be available first to Honor 7 devices after which the rest will receive the update during the final round.

One strong point that’s worth noting in Huawei devices is their custom interface, EMUI. This interface makes the experience on this devices quite impressive apart from adding them onto Android. However, some features in this interface just don’t operate so well.

The company has received the honors of being a Nexus manufacturer with consideration of the great Nexus 6P. One can only hope that this EMUI will be tweaked a bit.

While Honor is all over with this roll out update news, its parent brand, Huawei, is yet to say something about this. However, being a Nexus OEM will definitely jolt Huawei into action and hasten this process. Most likely, we might hear the news from Huawei later on this month.
