Re: Ascend P6 kitkat

Released by Huawei back in June for unbranded devices.
If yours is O2 branded you'll have to wait for O2 to test it first.

@Chris_K might have some more info ?

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

Re: Ascend P6 kitkat

We’ve been in discussion with Huawei around KitKat on the Ascend P6 device. Huawei have taken the decision not to launch KitKat on the P6, but they do currently have a BETA version of the software available on their website for download and it also contains instructions for installing this. We understand this may be something you want to do but we must warn about the risks of using unapproved and untested software. Should you update to this and have issues, it may not be something O2 will be able to support you with.

We understand Huawei’s decision may disappoint some P6 users but we’ll continue to work closely with Huawei and all our other device vendors to test and approve any new software they send to us.
