This is probably a bad news for all Ascend P6 owners outside China. Today Huawei announced the Emotion UI 2.0 upgrade schedule on its Vmall china forums and according to the post there, EMUI 2.0 upgrade with Android 4.4 KitKat will come to the international Ascend P6 in early June. Click on the above screenshot to enlarge the table and as it says “Overseas P6-U06″ and China mobile Ascend P6-T00 will receive EMUI 2.0 in early June. This news will be disappointing to hear for all of you Ascend P6 owners because Huawei has taken 6 months more to deliver what it promised to deliver in January this year.
Recently we have published an article stating that official Android kitkat update for Ascend P6 will arrive on May – http://huaweinews.com/2014/04/official-kitkat-ascend-p6/ by taking a Facebook post by “Huawei device Hungary” as the source. This news can also be true because different countries have different upgrade schedules but we won’t keep our hopes tight on receiving the update this month after seeing this official announcement made by Huawei developers.
Google I/O 2014 also scheduled to happen in June this year and the next version of Android may get announced there too. So if this happens the value of Android 4.4 update for P6 will diminish within owners and it will hurt the brand name. Huawei makes some nice hardware but being so late to deliver software updates for a main flagship device like Ascend P6 is really really bad.
