Huawei Honor 5X will finally receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA (over-the-air) update after months of waiting period. It was reported that the device would get the firmware update along with the latest build of EMUI4 soon after it was released in the United States in January this year but that obviously didn't happen.

Now fans of the brand who have been eagerly looking forward all this time to the update can at last breathe easy. Honor USA (via Phone Arena) has now officially announced on its Twitter page that the firmware will come to the Honor 5X device in the US soon, though it didn't reveal the exact date. The new operating system update is expected to come along with the security patch of the month. 

The Huawei Honor 5X came running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop based EMUI 3.1 when it was first launched in China in October last year before being made available in the US in late January this year.

The device has a metallic design with fingerprint scanner, sports a 5.5-inch Full-HD display with 1080 x 1920 pixels (401 ppi pixel density), and comes with a price tag of $199.99. 

It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor clocking at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 405 GPU, a 16GB internal memory (expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card), a 3GB RAM, a 13MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture, a 5MP front-snapper and a 3,000mAh battery equipped with Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
