Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is yesterday’s news since the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with many of us hoping our smart devices will receive an update to this latest and greatest version of Android sooner, rather than later. Or never, as the case may be for some. Selected owners of Huawei’s Honor 7 will be happy to find out that they can get an early taste of Marshmallow goodness on their device in the coming weeks by signing up for the Honor 7 Android 6 BETA test.
Signing up to the Marshmallow BETA test is pretty straightforward, all you need to enter is your name, email address, your handset’s IMEI number (dial *#06# to get your IMEI number), and the build number of the software your phone is currently running. If selected to take part in the BETA test, your Honor 7 will receive the Marshmallow update in the form of an OTA. Which makes it nice and simple, with no need to connect the handset to a computer to manually flash the firmware, which can be a nerve-wracking experience at times. You can sign up for the Honor & Marshmallow BETA test right here.
Besides being based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Beta firmware will also include EMUI 4.2. If selected, the OTA should reach your handset in the next couple of weeks. This sign-up is for UK Honor 7 owners only, the rest of Europe will follow later today with separate sign-up forms for each respective country. It should be noted that is a Beta test, and as such, there will be bugs, glitches, and maybe even some crashes. If selected to take part, it’s your job to give feedback to the manufacturer. Are you signing up for the beta test?
