Default Ascend P6 KitKat update might be delayed until March

Many of you were asking us when Huawei is going to roll out Android 4.4 KitKat update to the ever popular Ascend P6. Huawei promised the customers that Ascend P6 will get KitKat in January this month but that never happened Ė http://huaweinews.com/2014/01/ascend-p6-emotionui-2-3/. Then the time frame was pushed to February after we got a official beta firmware leak on January 30th - http://huaweinews.com/2014/01/androi...eta-ascend-p6/. For those of you asking us by comments and emails about ETA we have responded to you by saying the update will come this month for sure but now it seems like we are wrong.

We are receiving reports that Android 4.4 KitKat update for Ascend P6 is delayed until early March and that news is for the Chinese Unicom version of the P6. We all know that Huawei gives the latest updates first to the Chinese region and international customers gets it later. But since Ascend P6 is a success for Huawei that might change with this update and Huawei might push the update internationally at the same time as they release it for China. But judging from the past experiences it will take at least few more days if not weeks for Huawei to deliver the update outside China.

We might get another leaked firmwares in the meantime and there is a possibility that Huawei will announce the update at MWC 2014 which is scheduled to happen on 24 to 27 this month. But we donít have solid information on that yet. After Huawei releases the Unicom final stable firmware you will be able to flash that on your International Ascend P6 without a problem without waiting for the international firmware release, but that requires some knowledge and if you are a regular reader of HuaweiNews.com you know we have got you covered
hope this isn't the case. Really been looking forward toward the final release.

Considering we are on Feb 13th already I don't see this as an issue. The article reads "Early March" so if that's the case we are 2 weeks away. When I had the Galaxy S3 they moved the 4.2.2 Update deadline several times until it was skipped to go to 4.3.

Anyways I hope it comes on "Early March"....

K. This is my interpretation of the screenshot here http://bbs.anzhi.com/thread-8764244-1-1.html, may not be 100% accurate!
