Huawei Honor 6X was officially announced back in October last year. But the device was launched to the public at CES 2017. And now, as promised Huawei confirms that Android Nougat, as well as EMUI 5, will reach the Honor 6X in March this year.
Here is the official Huawei announcement:
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 device is targeted to uncompromised internet-minded millennials. It packs some pretty decent specs and features with a price tag of $249. As per the speed test results, Honor 6X loads up apps pretty faster than Lenovo K6 Note. However, the device failed to withstand scratch as well as bend test.
If you own an Honor 6X, update it to the latest Nougat as soon as the upgrade releases. Enjoy the magic of Nougat along with the EMUI 5.
