Huawei today began updating the Honor 6X to Emotion UI 5.0 and Android 7 Nougat. The 6X, which shipped earlier this year, included EMUI 4.1 and Android 6 out of the box. Huawei's newer handsets, such as the P10, are shipping with EMUI 5.0 and Nougat. The system update brings the 6X's experience inline with Huawei's latest phones. EMUI simplifies the experience a bit, with fewer steps required to take most actions. EMUI 5.0 also runs more smoothly, is more secure, adds an app drawer options, and lets people use two account profiles within a single app. Huawei says all Honor 6X handsets should receive the update by the end of the month.
