HONOR 6X to receive Android Nougat update in Q2
Yesterday, HONOR launched the 6X smartphone in the US and a few European countries. The device, which offers a great price-performance ratio, ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board.
However, HONOR does plan on updating the device to the latest and greatest Android version, Nougat. During a presentation at CES yesterday, the company announced that the 6X smartphone will receive the Android Nougat update in the second quarter of the year (Q2). This means that it will hit the device sometime between April and June.
The update will also come with HUAWEI’s latest EMUI 5.0 user interface, which changes the look and feel of Android quite a bit. It does bring a few new features to the table when compared with the previous version of the UI, with the biggest one being the option to enable the app drawer.
You can pre-order the HONOR 6X for $249.99 starting today in the US, while sales will officially kick off on January 10. In Europe, the smartphone will set you back €249 with sales starting today.
