Huawei reveals its roadmap for Android 6.0 Marshmallow: here's what devices are getting it

LG is reportedly rolling out an Android Marshmallow update for its G4 flagship next week, and a couple of other manufacturers already expressed their roadmaps for a similar firmware update. We also have a handy, albeit unofficial list revealing what devices will get a spot near the campfire and roast a marshmallow.

One of the China-based phone slingers, Huawei, just officially announced its roadmap for a future Android 6.0 update. The mentioned devices are Huawei P8, Mate 7, Mate S, P8 Youth Edition, P8 Max, the Chinese version of the G8 (Maimang 4), G7 Plus, and G7. Additionally, the Honor 7Honor 7i, Honor 6 Plus, Honor 6, X2, 4X, and Play 4C.

Of course, said devices won't be treated to stock Android - EMUI (Emotion UI) will be running on top of Marshmallow. There is no timeline provided for the update rollout, but it is said that Huawei will begin work on the update sometime in November.

It probably won't, considering P6 didn't get any update after 4.4.2.

My pc gets updates all the time, and Windows 10 is ready to go for just about anyone who wants it!

Updates add functions and keep it secure. What is wrong with you windows gets updates every other day. Can't admit Androids still fragmented then that's fine but don't post BS that makes Android users look arrogant.

2 weeks ago a friend asked me if he should take the P8 lite. I said f**k no, because you won't have any update even if the phone is just 6 months old, and it's selling poorly.
Thanks Huawei for giving me reason. Now he's trully happy with its Xiaomi mi4c, and he will have 6.0 of course.

If your priority is updates: get a Nexus.
If not: get any brand you like [Guess what so far from my experience with many brands no matter what upgrade you get it always sucks compared to the original stock firmware it was shipped with(at least in terms of battery life), add to that the upgrades don't add much your Apps will still run no matter what so why fret!]

Your device livelihood expectancy now a days is no more than 2 years, so simply move on.

It's news like this that make me greatly appreciate my OnePlus One even more. Manufacturers are guaranteed to end support for their hardware. By keeping the OS independent of both the Manufacturer AND Carrier, you're open to continuous updates for the life of the device...

This is why my ancient 2008 HP Pavilion Laptop PC (which is now being used by firend in college) is still receiving Windows updates till today, and is running on Windows 10 faster than Vista it came with.

I'm happy to here this as I'm planning on getting myself a Mate7. I've had quite a lot of Samsung flagships including Galaxy S2 to S4 & Note 1 to my current Note 4 and I want to try another brand now. I still love my Note 4 but Huawei's new phone designs rock :-)

PS.... I'm still keeping my Note 4 :-)

Does your phone WORK properly? Is there a new feature of 6 that you "need" on your phone? If no, who cares if it gets the update.
Had Huawei not made an easy way to go back to 4.3, when they released 5.1 for the Mate2, I would still be on 4.3 It was very stable.
5.1 for me, needed a patch to really get it stable on my phone, which B322 did. Some people are having issues, but, I think some of that is because people screw around with kernels, roms, playing with the boot loader or doing something they don't know how to play with correctly. Heck, I'm on day 51 on the same boot, running 24/7 and it's just as fast as it was on day 1.
Hey, your device, you want to jack around with it, it's your business, but mine works, not going to cry over not having the latest OS.
