Huawei’s firmware development for the Ascend P6 seemed to have halted on past few months but with the release of Android 4.4 EMUI 3.0 development firmwares in China for the Ascend P6, development seems to have started right back. Ascend P6 is still Huawei’s most popular and sold smartphones out there so its nice to see them updating these devices. 2 Weeks ago Huawei released the B707 EMUI 3.0 Android 4.4 development firmware update for the Ascend P6 as we wrote here – http://huaweinews.com/2014/12/ascend-p6-b707/ and now they have released a stable firmware with EMUI 3.0 named as B708.
This new B708 firmware update doesn’t bring any visual changes to the previous B707 firmware. Main and the biggest difference is that Huawei has fixed all the bugs existed on previous B707 and other firmwares and released the B708 as a stable version. If you have faced any issues such as system instabilities and slowdowns you can expect those to be solved on this stable B708 firmware.
If you decide to flash this firmware on your Ascend P6-U06, keep in mind that Huawei has mentioned that only 508SP02 , B706 and B707 users can update to B708 firmware. Upgrading from other firmwares might be possible but its not recommended because of Huawei’s warning. If you are running any of previous EMUI 3.0 Chinese firmwares right now on your Ascend P6, we definitely recommend you to upgrade to this newest B708 stable firmware as all the previous ones are just development firmwares.
