August 31, 2015 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Huawei has been releasing rather interesting smartphones for the last year or so. The company has unveiled a number of devices made out of metal, like the Mate7 phablet which was announced last year, three Huawei P8 devices, or the Honor 7 which was announced quite recently. The company has pushed out quite a few handsets, and it seems like they’re nowhere near done with that for this year. Huawei is still expected to unveil the 2016 edition of their Mate phablet, and they’ve also teased a new Android Wear-powered smartwatch which is supposed to launched during IFA in Berlin in a couple of days.

That being said, this China-based company has just released some info regarding Lollipop updates in India. Huawei has announced that they’ll roll out Android Lollipop to some of their devices starting next month (September). According to Huawei’s Facebook post, Honor 4C, Honor 6 and Honor 6 Plus devices will be getting the update this September, and Honor 4X will follow in October. The Honor 4C will get the update on September 21st, the Honor 6 will follow on September 25th, and the Honor 6 Plus will get the update 4 days later, September 29th. Those of you who own the Honor 4X in India will have to wait until October 20th, when Huawei will start rolling update for that handset. All of these devices will get Android Lollipop update with Huawei’s EMUI (Emotion UI) 3.1 installed on top of it. EMUI 3.1 actually brings quite a few improvements to Huawei’s skin, including performance boost (lead by ART), UI redesign, security enhancements, etc.

There you have it, the Android Lollipop update will be landing on a number of Huawei-branded devices in India very soon. As a side note, Huawei has been rather active when it comes to releasing devices recently, the company has unveiled the Honor 7i handset which sports a flip-up camera, and the Honor 7 was also launched in Europe. This Chinese smartphone OEM clearly has big plans for the future, and it will certainly be interesting to see their next move. Stay tuned for more info, IFA is right around the corner, and Huawei will be announcing the new ‘Mate’ device, and a new Android Wear-powered smartwatch at the show.
