World’s second largest smartphone manufacturer, Huawei, is warming up to roll out Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update for its popular Honor band smartphones. Honor users in India are likely to start receiving Marshmallow OTA updates starting February 2016.
The news first broke out on twitter as the company decided to tweet about it via official handle @HiHonorIndia. Company tweeted: “Coming soon! Starting February 2016, we will be rolling out Android M to honor phones.” So far, Company hasn’t announced any specific release date. The Honor series includes Honor 4C, Honor 4X Honor 6, Honor 6 Plus and the Honor 7 handset. From this list, we expect Honor 7 to receive this update first.
