Huawei Ascend Mate 2 to skip KitKat to go directly to Android 5.0
On Friday, Huawei said that the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 will skip over KitKat and go straight to Android 5.0 Lollipop. This will take place in the first half of next year. Currently, the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is powered by Android 4.3.
The bottom line is that Huawei Ascend Mate 2 owners in the U.S. will have to stick with Android 4.3 a little bit longer than they would have wanted to, but the device will eventually be powered by the latest and greatest build of the Android OS.
