Android 6.0 Update Rolls Out To Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 From November 7

The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 tablet will start to roll out from tomorrow of, on Monday November 7, says Huawei in a press release. Huawei says that the update might take a month before the rollout has been complete on all the Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 tablets.

This update is an expected follow up of the last news on the Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 from back in July, when Huawei announced it was seeking participants to do a pre-release update test on Huawei MediaPad M2-802L.

But the trial run must have been glitch free because Huawei now says that the update from Android 5.1 to Android 6.0 will begin its roll out at precisely 12:00 on November 7, with a 1.27GB update, for the Wi-Fi and 4G models of Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 which will also bring with it Huawei's own EMUI4.0 user interface on top of Android.

Another 8-inch Huawei tablet is the Huawei MediaPad M3 which will be launched in the US in about 5 weeks time, but this is a much more powerful tablet and with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display as well.
