Owners of the Honor 7 in several countries have for a month or so now been able to participate in the beta testing of the company's soon to come Android 6.0 Marshmallow software update. The company has recently come out saying that all Honor 7 users will also soon get a taste of the latest Android firmware. Based on a twitter update via their Honor EU Twitter account, those who are presently participating in the beta test program will see an over-the-air final version hit their devices any time soon. There will however be a slight delay, as the updates are expected to roll out in stages. Now that the OS has been tested and is ready for release, all other owners of the Honor 7 device should start seeing the OTA update notification hopefully within the next two weeks. So if you rock the handset, keep an eye out for the notification.
