Android 5.0 Lolipop was released 5 months ago and while other manufacturers are delivering or announcing upgrade plans for their devices, Huawei has kept silent about the matter until now. Huawei has now announced their Android Lolipop update plan on EMUI official forums.
Ascend Mate 7 will be the first device to get Android Lolipop in next month which is May. Then the Ascend P7 and Mate 2 is expected to get the update in July this year. We should mention that this update plan is only for the devices in China so international updates will take more time as usual.
Devices like Ascend P6 and Ascend G6 are missing from the update plan so its safe to assume that those devices won’t get the Lolipop update anytime soon or ever. Huawei hasn’t mentioned the specific EMUI version that Lolipop update includes. We don’t think that Huawei will develop whole new Emotion UI version for the upgrade so we can probably expect a slight bump to the EMUI version number to include Lolipop styling and features.
You can see the update plan below. First column shows the device model and second shows the year and month that these phones set to receive the updates.
