Looks like Honor is honoring its promise, the 6X is supposedly getting Nougat sometime this month

When the Honor 6X launched earlier this year, you could say that we here at AP were unimpressed. Sure, the phone packed in a lot of good specs for $250, but it shipped with Marshmallow, a version of Android that was over a year old at that point (well, it still is). In March, Huawei's sub-brand launched a beta program for 6X owners to try out Nougat and the much improved EMUI 5 — the company promised that Android 7.0 would roll out in the first half of 2017. Looks like that may actually happen.

More troubling, though, seems to be news coming out of the company's value sub-brand Honor in recent days. Speaking to a source, we've heard anecdotally that Honor US continues to be the target of layoffs in Huawei Device's larger US presence, but a tipster also reached out to us last week with this bizarre email about the company migrating user data out of the United States.

The email itself is pretty dull, and Honor never actually says why they're migrating Huawei ID data from the US to Germany.

Honor 6X (Nougat) review: A great value proposition

Huawei is keeping up its attempts to break into the saturated U.S. smartphone market with its sub-brand Honor. It started with the 5X and continued with the Honor 8. The premise is to bring mid- or high-tier specs and slap them in a premium chassis, then sell it at a very affordable price. However, as good as those devices have been, their weakness has been the software (again).
