Huawei is one of the largest smartphone makers in the world, and while it may not be anywhere near as prominent outside of China as it is domestically, the brand is attracting an increasing amount of attention. You could say part of this is due to the company producing one of this year's Nexuses, but credit also goes out to an increasingly attractive portfolio of hardware.
Still, making decent phones is only part of the process. You also have to support them, an area where Huawei has had an awkward track record.
So Huawei has announced which phones it intends to upgrade to Android 6.0. Said announcement also happens to be in Chinese.
Fortunately GizmoChina has put up a translation that helps clarify what we're seeing.
The following devices are set to receive a Marshmallow update in China:
- G7 Plus
- Honor 4X
- Honor 6
- Honor 6 Plus
- Honor 7
- Honor 7i
- Honor Play 4C
- Honor X2
- Maimang 4 (domestic variant of G8)
- Mate 7
- Mate S
- P8 Max
- P8 Youth Edition
Huawei will reportedly start adapting Marshmallow for the phones above starting next month, so it could be a while before updates begin rolling out. The list may not apply to international versions.
