Huawei Ascend P6 Android 4.4 Update delayed?

The Android 4.4 Kitkat update for the stylish Huawei Ascend P6 is rumoured to have been pushed back to March.

It might not necessarily matter if you are running the latest version of Android OS on your phone, but for some it is something to look forward too, especially when an update was promised and hasn’t yet turned up.

Huawei Ascend P6 owners are currently in this position as Huawei had originally planned to launch the most up to date build of Android for the P6 by the end of January, however the date was missed and now a rumour is circling that March is more likely.

Gizchina News of the week

Reasons for the delay a likely due to the use of Huawei’s own Emotion UI which the Huawei Ascend P6 ships with, but this hasn’t been confirmed by Huawei.

Are you one of the Ascend P6 owners waiting for Android 4.4 KitKat to come to your phone? What do you think of Emotion UI? Would you prefer a more stock experience? Let us know in the comments below.

    I actually do have KitKat running on my P6, albeit the beta version. From my experience though, apart from some minor bugs, the system is pretty stable and runs really smoothly. Gaming also seems to have improved a lot.

        Just create a folder called dload on the root of your sd card, download the update file from a website like XDA or Huaweinews, extract the UPDATE.APP file into the dload folder and then go to the software update icon and pick local update. Hope I helped. Also, remember that it’s still in beta so certain things might be unpolished.

    Personally I’m not particularly fond of the EUi as is currently stands I use Nova Launcher. Love the phone though Just wish more people were working on custom ROMs – tried the Kit Kat beta had a few problems with BBC Iplayer and Movie Tube went back to Finless Bob 1.7. I will wait….
