Well this is long overdue firmware update because the leaked version of this firmware leaked exactly 3 months ago as we reported here – http://huaweinews.com/2013/09/huawei-honor-2-b703-firmware/. Leaked B702 was the first firmware to bring Emotion UI1.6 and Android 4.2.2 to the Ascend G615/Honor 2. Then the leaked B703 firmware came with bug fixes for the B702.

Today Huawei has officially released the B703 firmware for the international Ascend G615/Honor 2. This official version is considered to be the most stable version since leaked B703 can be a initial version since it got released a long time ago. This official firmware U9508 V100R001C00B703 is available to download from the Huawei’s German support site and this is the first official firmware to feature EMUI 1.6 and Android 4.2.2. If you are already running the leaked B703 we strongly advice you to update to this official version.

Firmware update is done by the regular Huawei method and a guide is included in German language for starters.
