Huawei Confirms Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update For a Bunch of Models

by Joe 20

Although the probable list of models which are going to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow update from most manufacturers was leaked earlier, we need actual confirmation from each company to be sure of that information. Now, Huawei has just announced the models which will be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update and there’s most of the recent models in the list.

The list of models that are confirmed to receive Android 6.0 in China are as follows:  Huawei P8, Mate 7, Mate S, P8 youth edition, P8 Max, Maimang 4 (domestic variant of G8), G7 Plus and G7. In the honor series, Honor 7,7i, 6 Plus, 6, X2, 4X, and Play 4C will be upgraded to Android 6.0.

As you can see, there’s a lot of phones that are eligible for the latest Android update. The work on the adaptation of the new OS for the listed phones will begin in November.


We still don’t know whether the above listed phones are the only ones that will receive Android 6.0 in the coming months. Also, these are the models confirmed in China. There may be a few changes in the list when it comes out internationally.
So are you happy with the list? Is your phone supported?

      Yep! The one with the model no. ALE-UL00 is the P8 Lite/ Youth Edition.

    Honor 4x Che2-L11 will be upgraded to Android 6.0 or not ?

    • Joe

      Like I said to Titan5, the international variants too should be upgraded as well. But we will have to wait for an official confirmation for these models. We will update if more information comes up.

    How about international version of Honor 7 – PLK-L01?

    • Joe

      This list was released by the Chinese EMUI team, that’s why you are not seeing many international models. But given that the Chinese Honor 7 is going to get Android 6.0, I see no reason for the international version to be left out! So, I m quite sure that PLK-L01 should be upgraded as well.
      Still, if we get any confirmation from the company, we will let you know.

        Thanks a lot for positive news Joe:)

    Mediapad M2 803L ?

    • Joe

      No idea about the M2 tablet, but don’t be disappointed just yet. The list may not be exhaustive. 🙂

    Ascend G7 is still waiting on Lollipop (supposed arriving next month), won’t be holding my breath for Marshmallow.

  • HonorSucks

    Again Honor 6 international variant is missing from the list. This is the reason i bought Xiaomi Redmi Note 2. With Note 2 I get software updates every friday compared to Huaweis once in a year cycle. Never again Huawei! Total crap.
