It seems like we are getting new firmware releases for Ascend P6 like once a week these days. Huawei was late to bring the KitKat Update to Ascend P6 but now they are releasing increment updates like clockwork. Just a week ago we brought you the news about the B513 official leaked firmware for the P6 which you can find right here – http://huaweinews.com/2014/07/ascend-p6-b513-leaked/. B512 firmware was leaked on Russian forums and its intended for Russian region as we reported on our article.
Today Huawei has officially started sending out a new firmware for the European region numbered as B512. This new B512 firmware is the successor to B510 and B511 firmwares which were released some time back. Its reported that this new B512 firmware is nearly identical to the B513 firmware release so if you are already enjoying the B513 on your Ascend P6, it might not be worth it to upgrade your phone to B512.
B512 doesn’t bring new features but it fixes some bugs which affected GPS and WiFi connectivity on B510 and B511 firmwares. Also its possible to upgrade to this new B512 firmware even if you are running B513 at this moment. If you are an European and your P6 is running B513 firmware right now, it maybe a wise decision to jump to B512.
If you are running B510 or B511 right now, we definitely recommend you to upgrade to B512.
