The popular Huawei Ascend P6 that we have dubbed for cheaper alternative iPhone 5s has been announced to get an update for its operating system to be Android 4.4 KitKat on January. Indeed, it is a very popular Chinese smartphone which will skip the update for Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and will directly go to the newest of 4.4 build. This statement has been presented by president of Huawei, Xu Xi Quan so basically it is not a rumor.
With this news, of course we could say that the consideration to skip Android 4.3, the company will create Ascend P6 to be the first among its class that has received the latest version of operating system from Google. If it so, it means that the device will get KitKat before Samsung Galaxy S4. It is true that Samsung will get over bungled 4.3 updates for S3 and S4 which it happened.
So what you can get with the update? KitKat update brings new “Project Svelte” as user interface for P6. However, we do not know yet about the details of the changes on it. It will be so much interesting if we could find out Huawei introduces Android app drawers so that the P6 has a similar look like Android after the following update. It seems that it gonna happens since there is a heavy presence of Gogole for KitKat. In the other hand, there will be accelerated version update onnly for the next Huawei devices in order to bring more attractions for North American market.
So, what do you think about Huawei that it will beat many OEMs? Do you think that it is great to consider switching companies in order to get a speedier updates? Well we only could see about further information about that. What do you think?
