Android 6.0 Marshmallow Goes Continental For Honor 7

By  | 

For those users of the Huawei Honor 7 in Europe, good news abounds. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is being sent to your devices and if you haven’t yet gotten it, you should start receiving it soon.

The device was supposed to get the update in January, but the schedule seemed to have been pushed forward, though not for too long.

Users will be getting version 6.0, however. There isn’t information on when version 6.0.1 with the expanded IM emoji list will arrive, but the Doze mode, improved app drawer, a better UI and Google Now on Tap besides many other features should suffice.

Powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 935 chipset, a Mali-T628 MP4 GPU, and 3GB RAM, the Honor 7 was released in the middle of 2015 to decent fanfare. Despite being a 5.2-inch device, like many other Chinese phones it has a large battery capacity at 3,100mAh though without fast charging capabilities.

Nevertheless, it has a well-placed fingerprint sensor and a hefty 20MP front camera complemented by an 8MP selfie shooter. It retails for $360 in the US, £250 for the UK market, and €350 across the rest of Europe.
