As promised, Honor, a subsidiary of Huawei, has reportedly released Android Marshmallow to Honor 6 and Honor 6 Plus in India.

Technology blog GSM Arena, citing Indian Honor 6 owners, has claimed that the Android Marshmallow (build-number: H60-L04C675B810) has been deployed to the device. It is around 700 MB in size.

To verify the aforementioned the report, we went through Honor India's Facebook page to see if the company has really commenced the roll-out process and we found that Honor India is actually deploying Android Marshmallow to Honor 6 and 6 Plus as part of soak test to a few registered users. During this trial run, the company takes feedback from the users to make sure the firmware is free of glitches. Once convinced that the software is bug-free, the update will be released to public en masse.

Even Honor 4C is part of this soak test and interested Honor device owners can register for this program HERE.

The company, while replying to a fan on Facebook, revealed that the public version of Android Marshmallow update will be released to Honor 4C in March.
