Huawei Ascend P7 Lollipop Update Now Rolling Out
Huawei has arrived a little late to the show, but it has arrived, and that’s what matters. The mobile firm is now rolling out Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for its flagship phone, the Ascend P7.
Owners of the phone should notice the update via OTA. Those who cannot though can manually download the update from Huawei’s official website, and flash it through the ‘Updates’ menu of their phones.
The size of the update is fairly large – around 1.26GB, and brings significant improvements to the phones, with a new iteration of Huawei’s Emotion user interface (EMUI).
The rollout is fairly behind schedule, but there is indication that Huawei will be much faster in releasing Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS update soon to its flagship phones.
In addition to the P7, Huawei has also released the Android Lollipop update for last year’s highly successful 6-inch phablet, the Ascend Mate 7.
Users can check the status of their OTA update by accessing Settings and going to ‘Update’. Those who are yet to receive the update can manually install it by downloading it from the Huawei website, and choosing ‘Menu’ and then ‘Local Update’ in the Update settings of their phone.
