About 6 weeks ago we brought you the news about B906 Android 4.2.2 firmware release for the Ascend Mate – http://huaweinews.com/2013/11/ascend-mate-b906-firmware/. However B906 was intended for the Chinese version of Ascend Mate. Huawei is always late when it comes to releasing firmware updates for international devices.

Few days ago Huawei Russia has released a new firmware update called B907. This update is intended for the Russian market but you can install this firmware on international Ascend Mate MT1-U06. English language is included but we aren’t exactly sure about the other included languages.This new firmware is numbered as “V100R001C00B907″ and unfortunately we weren’t able to find a complete changelog of B907 but user reports indicates that B907 is stable and faster compared to the previous firmware releases.

If you are running B906 on your Ascend Mate right now you should definitely consider updating to this new firmware. If you are running older B2** series firmwares, updating to this new one will bring many improvements such as energy saving features. As with previous firmwares you can Root this new one by following out Root guide – http://huaweinews.com/2013/06/how-to-root-huwei-ascend-mate/
