Huawei announces its Android Marshmallow-eligible devices list

With Google’s release of Android Marshmallow to Nexus owners, and the unveiling of its own Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the announcements of Google’s Android OEMs regarding their update-eligible devices and a possible timeframe for the new update’s release. LG just announced earlier this week that it would begin updating its flagship G4 in Poland next week, with the update rolling out to Korea, then Europe and the Americas. Not one to fall behind, Huawei has now joined the gang of OEMs with its own Android Marshmallow-eligible devices list.

Information obtained by the source below shows that Huawei has announced update eligibility for the Honor Play 4C, 4X, X2, 6, 6 Plus, 7i, and Honor 7, as well as the Maimang 4 (G8), G7, G7 Plus, as well as the P8, P8 Max, P8 youth edition, and the Mate 7 and Mate S.

This is an initial list for the Android Marshmallow update, and we don’t know if this list will remain in its current state over time (sometimes, companies add devices to the list as last-minute decisions). As for when you can expect Android Marshmallow, Huawei is expected to start rolling out the update next month (November).

Android Marshmallow brings a new search bar and alphabetical slider for your app drawer, customizable app permissions, more detailed per app battery stats, a new “harshmallow” Easter Egg (yes, “harshmallow” makes sense with the new Easter Egg), along with some new landscape wallpapers (in portrait mode, of course), Google’s new “Doze” sleep mode that is said to increase battery life to 2X its current state, and a new Android boot animation, along with native fingerprint scanner support and SD card support for Google’s sweetest treat yet.

Are you ready for Android Marshmallow? Did you purchase the Huawei Nexus 6P? If so, how are you liking Google’s latest? Are you still waiting for your manufacturer to confirm Android Marshmallow for your handset? Do your thing in the comments.

    I would really like for Google to make the OS lighter so that it could A. take less space out of rom, B. Reduce crashes on older systems and C. speed up the device it self.
    But no no no. More features more this more that bla bla bla. And still android takes an incredible amount of Ram for no good reason.

      It’s a little virtual machine, so if something Android will always need is tons of RAM.

      Unless they change their approach…

      They are sold to their OS mistakes.

    What Google should lead is making or requesting a manufacturer to make a phone with Homton6000+Mah like battery with great SPECs and not the crappy specs we get with good massive battery phones.

    Is like if manufacturers think a really big battery can’t go with nice specs…. What a bunch of nonsense.

    They should know some people do not like waiting for the thing to charge. Even if it is for 30 minutes of “QUICK” charge. So that way we would spend more time into Google+ ??? (yeah right)

    So be sure to never purchase unknown chinese crap…

    If you want to enjoy Android’s latest sweeties.

    Stick with known brands unless this China junksters understand they have to outsource their software dev out to Google One.

    Then we might start again wasting our precious money in their Mediatek powered phones.
