Huawei made highlights when it rolled out an amazing Nexus 6P in conjunction with Google, a position that has on previous occasions been held by Motorola and LG.
It seems Google’s reward to the Chinese OEM is to hasten the process of rolling out software updates on the company’s Android-based smartphones as well. This seems to be the current thing on the Huawei Honor 7, a smartphone produced by the company’s Honor branch. While in the past the company has been a victim of delayed software updates, it seems the recent partnership with Google has shed some light on this process.
Huawei is world famous for its magnificent designs when it comes to hardware and this what it did with the Honor 7. Owners of this device will now be rewarded with an early upgrade to the latest Android OS. However, the update is currently being pushed to dwellers of India alone.
There is a slight catch
As mentioned earlier, the update is currently available to Indian users of the Honor 7, but there is still a catch involved in getting the update. If you want the update fast, you will have to request it through an online form. The form asks for the device’s IMEI number, the user’s phone number, and email address as well as the current version of the software in use.
Make sure this information is provided correctly and in so doing, your phone will get the OTA update in a period of about 48 hours. This is the best chance for early adopters who own this device to try out the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system on their devices and experience the new features that come with the OS.
Honor had provided Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta version in several other countries, but its only India that has access to the OTA update now. Whether the Huawei sub-brand will use the same procedure in other countries or not is still at its discretion.
Huawei brought the Honor 7 to India back in October and with it, users enjoy an amazing camera, quality display, great camera and a fast and very accurate fingerprint reader. Now that there is a new Marshmallow update coming on board, things are set to get even better, especially with the user interface and performance in general.
