As per an Android Police report, Huawei has confirmed that the update will begin rolling out for the device in March 2017.
The statement which Android Police reported read – “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 anytime soon, it might be worthwhile to wait!”
With Android Nougat update comes all the new features such as split-screen multiwindow, enhanced notification panel, doze on the go for battery, screen dpi customisations, improved recent menu etc.
Android Nougat update for Honor 6X will also bring the all new EMUI 5.0. Launched with company’s flagship, Mate 9, EMUI in itself is a pretty solid upgrade from EMUI 4.1 on which Honor 6X runs. The new version brings the much-needed app drawer and Huawei claims that EMUI 5.0 learns on its own. The new OS skin will adapt your usage habits and try to deliver all the functionalities in the least time possible.
