Huawei is looking for 100 participants to soak test the company’s upcoming Android 5.1 Lollipop update for its Honor 6 smartphone. Although to be in with a chance to enter the beta, you will have to be a member of its Honor Club.
Fortunately membership is free, all you need is your name and email address. Once registered, Huawei wants you to send them a written email application with a short statement explaining why you should be in the test group. Here’s Huawei’s explanation on how to sign up:
“send us an email with the subject ”Beta Test Honor 6″, your IMEI number and a short statement why you are the appropriate person for the test to email@example.com.”
If you are wondering how to find your IMEI number, type ‘*#06#’ into your dialler.
Entry is open to Huawei customers living in France, Germany and the UK. The applications deadline is June 30th, leaving just a few days for you to craft your finely worded email. The first 100 applicants to wow Huawei will be notified of their success sometime next week.
We’re not exactly sure what to expect with the Lollipop update for the Honor 6, other than the usual upgrades. But we do know that the update will also include a latest version of Huawei’s EMUI 3.1. The final version of Huawei’s Lollipop for the Honor 6 is expected to rollout across Europe sometime over the summer.
