Huawei Honor 7 gets Android Marshmallow in Europe

Huawei Honor 7 gets Android Marshmallow update in Europe

This 5.2-inch handset finally gets the Android 6.0 update, this being the new firmware that was supposed to arrive back in late February.

Huawei Honor 7 launched last summer loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and now it finally begins to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. Unfortunately, this is only happening in Europe for the time being. However, Honor 7 users that are connected to US mobile networks should get the new firmware soon as well.

Huawei promised to release this update back in late February, but that did not happen. Fortunately, the update is finally available, but only in Europe. At the end of last week, HuaweiEU posted the following message on Twitter: "Finally folks. The Marshmallow update for Honor 7 is out from today forward via OTA." 

The details are not available yet, but the highlights of Android 6.0 Marshmallow are well known - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, a new app drawer, granular permissions, an improved lock screen, and many others. As usual, the new firmware should also come with the latest security patch integrated. Since the update rolls out in stages, not all Honor 7 owners will get the notification at once. Those in a hurry can always check for the update manually.

We will get back to the Marshmallow update for Huawei Honor 7 as soon as it rolls out to US-based consumers, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
