Following an extensive beta test in France, Germany and the Netherlands over the past few months, Huawei has finally announced that its Honor 6 and 6 Plus smartphones in Europe are getting the update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Not only will the software update bring the latest version of Huawei’s custom software overlay EMUI 3.1, it should also include better Wi-Fi connectivity, better notification management, a convenient one-handed mode and device protection functionality. Overall, the Honor 6 and 6 Plus should be much more responsive and reliable after this update.
If you’d like to take a better look at what EMUI 3.1 will look like on your device, be sure to check out our full review of the Huawei Mate S.
