Huawei has has begun rolling out its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Honor 7 smartphone. The smartphone was announced back in October and went on sale on Flipkart for Rs 22,999 in the same month.
The smartphone maker put out a post on its official Facebook page and also has a strange note at the bottom asking users to register with their details for their respective OTA updates. Clicking on registration link reveals a form where users will need to fill in their smartphone’s current software version, IMEI number, email address and even a contact number. However, the contact number is an optional detail.
According to the same, Honor 7 smartphone owners can expect an OTA update notification on their handsets with 24-48 hours of submitting the form. For now it isn’t clear as to which new features Huawei will deliver to with its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. As for the regular stuff, that is expected to be in there, there Google’s Now on Tap search assistant, better app permissions, app linking, native fingerprint support for the Honor 7’s fingerprint scanner along with performance and battery life improvements.
The Huawei Honor 7 sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display and houses its own Kirin 935 SoC which sports an octa-core setup along with 3 GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and as is the case with Honor phones we have seen in the past, it comes with the Emotion UI 3.1 skin atop the Android OS. The phone sports a unibody metal design.
