During CES, Honor said the Honor 6x would receive an update to both Android Nougat and EMUI 5 in Q2 of 2017. That time frame is as vague as Time Warner's technician appointment schedules. Thankfully, Huawei said in an email today that the Honor 6x would receive these updates in March — just a month away. This release schedule should excite many 6x users, considering it's actually a quarter ahead of their originally planned schedule.
While the phone is not without its hardware faults, Android Nougat and EMUI 5 will certainly make the Honor 6x a much more worthwhile purchase at $249.
