Huawei is letting existing owners of the Honor 6 help beta test the upcoming EMUI 3.1 and Android 5.1 for a final launch later this summer.

Huawei is planning to roll out their proprietary EMUI 3.1 software alongside Android 5.1 late this summer. Current Honor 6 owners will have the opportunity to beta test multiple versions before the official release of the final version. The manufacturer has announced via its social media channels that the first 100 Honor Club members will be selected for the test.

These users will receive the software update based on individual smartphone serial numbers. Testers are encouraged to provide feedback directly to the manufacturer and will thus be directly involved in the testing process of the new firmware. Once the beta ends, the final launch will hopefully come by this September to Europe.

Owners who are not part of the Honor Club can still participate by registering and signing up with Huawei. The application period, however, ends on June 30th.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
