Good news just came through for all the fans of the famous CyanogenMod, because UMI has just officially announced development of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based CM13 for their UMI Touch model.
It’s not the time to pop the champagne yet though, because even in the press release itself they are not so optimistic about the expected time frame of the actual CM release. Porting to Mediatek and difficulties with the source code have been cited as the main obstacles, but they are optimistic enough to claim that UMI Touch is going to be the first Mediatek phone ever succeeding in that feat.
In general UMI is not slacking with software updates and since its March release the Touch model has already received two new OTA firmwares. Marshmallow-based CyanogenMod OS13 if of course a different kind of an animal and a significant challenge, but fortune favors the bold so wishing all the best to the UMI engineers.
