Huawei has been notorious when it comes to software updates these days.For Ascend P1, Huawei has released a beta JellyBean 4.1 firmware for German customers on its German Huawei downloads web site about 2 months ago. But its worth noting that this is indeed a beta version and contains many bugs. This update isn’t available to download on international Huawei web site and there weren’t any information about a forth coming stable JellyBean update until customers went outrageous requesting a stable update for their Ascend P1 smartphones.


Responding to hundreds of comments on Facebook, now Huawei is saying that JellyBean stable update is coming in next few weeks to Ascend P1.


These requests are on Huawei’s Emotion UI official Facebook page . However its still unclear if the new update is based on Android 4.2.2 or just 4.1 but we will be able to find out in the near future.
