Huawei Ascend D1

The Huawei Ascend D1, Ascend P1, and Honor 2 will be getting Android Jelly Bean updates, along with some other unspecified models by the Chinese manufacturer.

GSM Insider quotes Huawei’s Richard Yu posting to his page on Chinese social network Weibo about the Jelly Bean updates. Richard Yu said that apart from the Jelly Bean Android 4.2 update coming to the Ascend D1, Ascend P1, and Honor 2, the devices would also get updated to the Emotion UI 1.6. In the case of the D1, both the quad and the dual-core version are promised the update.

While a  time frame for the update has not been confirmed, according to the same source, other Huawei devices will also be getting the update, but they haven’t been name-checked as of yet.

While this may be great news for users of the Huawei smartphones mentioned above, the company is also preparing the imminent launch of its new flagship smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P6, which, according to the latest information, will be shown to the world in June (it even has a rumored price).

Do you use a Huawei smartphone? Is it among the ones planned for update?
