Ascend P6 Android 4.4 update

Introduced as the worlds thinnest smartphone in the summer of 2013, Huawei Ascend P6 has never seen an upgrade to the latest version of Android 4.4, although some echoes have been heard last winter that Huawei will be rolling out a software update in January 2014, which includes KitKat OS. Unfortunately it didnt happen until today.

Huawei finally announced this week that the Ascend P6 Android 4.4 update is now available to China Unicom clients (Ascend P6 P6-U06) and although the Chinese manufacturer hasn’t said a word on global availability of the software, it still is an official news on this matter.

Current firmware build is P6-U06V100R001C17B506 and it is available for download (change log included) along with some tutorials on how to proceed with its installation. In terms of changes, aside from Android 4.4, the new firmware includes Emotion UI 2.0, Lockscreen improvements, Gallery improvements and a handful of enhancements and security fixes.

A global rollout is expected in the following weeks.
