After a recent leak suggested Android Marshmallow for a few Huawei handsets, the Huawei P8, Mate 7, Mate S, P8 Youth edition, P8 Max, Ascend G7 and G7 Plus are now eligible for receiving the software upgrade. The list includes Honor editions such as Honor 7, 7i, 6 Plus, 6, 4X, 4C and MediaPad X2.
According to its official EMUI page, Huawei will bring the update in November. The list pertains to China and there could be changes as far as the international models are concerned. As of now the only Huawei phone that ships with Android Marshmallow is its Nexus 6P, launched alongside the LG's Nexus 5X. Both the devices are on pre-order via Play Store with shipping starting later in October. This means much ahead of the official rollout tech enthusiasts can lay their hands on the latest Android version through the new Nexus models.
Google is the first to seed the software upgrade starting with its Nexus devices, although there are a few manufacturers who have already started working on the upgrade, but are yet to commence the rollout. These include Sony, HTC and Samsung for its Galaxy devices.
