After many push backs we have finally revealed that the update is set come at some point early march – http://huaweinews.com/2014/02/ascend-p6-kitkat-delayed/. Even though we are living in the March already we haven’t received any trusty tips about a possible time frame for the KitKat update.
But Huawei seems to be working on getting everything ready for the much awaited update. Few readers told us they have received an update to the HiSuite program which is the Huawei’s tool to manage Huawei phones and tablets via computers. This update is numbered as 18.104.22.1686 and the previous version was 22.214.171.1246.

Only way to receive this new version at the moment is by updating your current HiSuite program.
This new 188.8.131.526 version includes an exciting new feature which is the support to Android 4.4 KitKat firmwares. Click the screenshot above to find out more details about the changes. This indicates us that the KitKat update for Ascend P6 is due soon.
