The topic of firmware updates for Huawei is indeed an issue, which you love to controversially discuss can – and should be.
So very you with the Design and the quality of its devices on the Beliebheitsskala always further to the top unscrews, the more upset the customer with the waiting time for promised Updates or firmware updates, the major errors (Bugs).
This is for me personally a firmware update to a newer Android Version is not so important, if the device with the installed Version runs well and vulnerabilities. If, however, Updates with big words coming on, you should his words with consistent actions.
Currently, it seems this time a reverse path. Although it has been already known, which devices are, in principle, for an Update to Android 6 Marshmallow are provided, but with the rash of announcements of a quick release, it was this time back.
Maybe you here is actually from the past, learn the Lessons, than a year ago Android 5 Lollipop for the Mate 7 for the first quarter of 2015 announced. The actual delivery of the final international Lollipop Version was made on the last day of the third quarter.
Accidental Leak of a Beta Test or Final?!
As I said, it is different this time. So different, that yesterday some Chinese Mate 7 User – without any notice – on the Huawei PC Software HiSuite to Update to a Version B506 offered got.
After the first big question mark, what is behind it, came out rather quickly, that this is a Firmware based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and EMUI 4.0 was.
Within a few hours, the Thread in the Chinese Huawei Club Forum over 450 entries, and both the message about the firmware update, as well as the installations are expected to rise rapidly.
Whether this Version of the Firmware to an accidental Leak or a Beta Firmware or even to a (first) Final, is currently still unclear. As far as my Chinese is enough, it is apparently so far only Users as Beta users are registered, the Update will be offered. This speaks clearly for a first Beta Test. Although the Mate 7 is not the current flagship of Huawei, is and you last rather stressed that the first Android 6 device after Huawei Nexus 6P – probably one of the Huawei Mate 8 would be. This can be sure to the conclusion that also to Android 6 Marshmallow for the current flagships of the P series and Mate series, the Huawei P8, and the Mate’s work.
Obviously Huawei here as the current Partner of Google and the manufacturer of your current Google Nexus quite well in the development of its Firmwares benefit – ultimately, what, then, of course, also the users benefit, which may have faster and more stable Updates to look forward to. And even if this first Android 6 Marshmallow Firmware, of course, only for the MT7-TL10 – so does our international MT7-L09 variant – is, so one can be optimistic that, this time, the international market also, not a big Disadvantage.
In the context of Android 6 Marshmallow updated Huawei’s own user interface, EMUI, to Version 4.0. This are as of yet no information whether also essential elements of re-designed or the functionality extended once again.
With the now available Firmware, however, it will surely not be long until we have more concrete information and pictures get!
