Originally launched at CES 2017 last month, the Honor 6X is a successor to the Honor 5X, which was launched back in 2015. The latest mid-ranger from the Chinese manufacturer packs good specs for its price with the main highlight being the dual-camera setup, something which is uncommon in this price segment. Powered by the in-house octa-core Kirin 655 SoC, the device comes in three storage variants: 3GB+32GB, 4GB+32GB, and 4GB+64GB, and has been available for the purchase in the US and European regions for a while now.

Speaking of software, the Honor 6X was launched with Android Marshmallow based EMUI 4.1, which disappointed many who were hoping the device to ship with the latest version: Android Nougat. For those concerned about the device shipping with the relatively outdated software version, it appears that you won’t have to wait long to get your hands on Android Nougat as the company has just revealed the details regarding the upcoming update. Huawei has confirmed to AndroidPolice via an email that the company is working on a new EMUI update based on Android Nougat for the Honor 6X, adding that the update will be rolled out to the device as early as March.

The company did promise at the time of launching that the Honor 6X will be updated to Android Nougat before the end of Q1. Whether Huawei will be able keep its promise about the update timeframe remains to be seen.
