About two weeks ago, Huawei Honor Malaysia opened the Android 7.0 Nougat beta program for the country’s users of the Honor 5C or Honor 7 Lite.
While this update has not yet hit the stable version, the latest reports coming in from India claim that those using the Honor 5C will start receiving the stable update to Android 7.0 Nougat in April. Even though those who have the Huawei Honor 8 are currently able to update their devices to the latest Nougat OS, the phone’s low-end variant dubbed the Honor 8 Smart will start receiving the same treat somewhere in May. This will also be the same time the Honor 6X will start receiving the stable version of Nougat in the same market.
Right before the Huawei Honor 5C receives the update to Android 7.0 Nougat at least a month from now, the handset will be updated with support for VoLTE services this coming month of March. Still, those who are unable to wait for these long periods can get the beta version installed on their phones right away. The trio’s Nougat update, as expected, will be based on EMUI 5.0 skin, but this should be updated to v5.1, which will power the latest Huawei P10 and P10 Plus out of the box.
Mark you that Huawei Honor 5C is the oldest device in the list, but it will be the first to be updated to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS. Stay tuned and we’ll update you on when exactly you can expect to receive the OTA notification on your phone.
