A couple of months back, Huawei had started beta testing the Honor 7 Marshmallow update in a few countries. Now, it looks like the update is all set to move from the beta stage to the final release. The company announced via its official European Honor account that all Honor 7 users will get the final version of Android 6 Marshmallow update in the next two weeks.
Back in December, the company invited users to sign for testing out the beta release. Now, two months later, you would be getting the Android 6 update before the end of February. This is definitely good news since there are still many flagships yet to be upgraded to the new OS.
After Beta testers, all other user will get the final version of Android 6 via OTA. We assume it will be within the next 2 weeks. #honor
