Huawei Ascend Mate 2 owners are up in arms today with the shocking news that their smartphone will not be receiving an Android Kitkat update!

In a blog post on the official Huawei site, staff from the E-commerce side of Huawei posted the bad news and are already receiving upset and angry comments from customers who feel let down by the company.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is a quad-core 1.6Ghz, 6.1-inch fable with 2GB RAM and LTE. Those specs are more than enough to run Android Kitkat, but for reasons not mentioned in the post the phone will be sticking with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

We could look at the possibility that Huawei will be skimping 4.4 Kitkat to deliver Lollypop to the phablet, but if this were the case I’m sure they would have mentioned it! Whatever their reason for the decision it is sure creating a lot of resentment with those who were awaiting the update.
