Huawei offers Android 5.1 beta to Honor 6 handsets in Europe

Huawei has begun rolling out its Android 5.1 Lollipop beta to Honor 6 handsets in Europe. One hundred people in the ‘Honor Club’ throughout France, Germany, and the U.K. will get an opportunity to trial the update ahead of its official rollout.

If you have an Honor 6 and you’d like to get involved, you simply have to contact Huawei and say why you’d like to test Android 5.1.

“Make sure to send us an email with the subject ”Beta Test Honor 6″, your IMEI number and a short statement why you are the appropriate person for the test to myhonor@hihonor.com,” the company explains. “The first 100 applications that convinced us most will be notified by us next week.”

The closing date for applications is June 30, so you’ll need to apply before then if you want to be included. But the sooner you register your interest, the better your chance of being picked.

The Honor 6 is Huawei’s answer to devices like the iPhone 6 Plus; it’s a larger flagship, but it’s affordable. It packs a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Huawei’s own octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with a microSD card slot.

The Honor 6 still ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat pre-installed, so this Lollipop update is one that all users are very much looking forward to.
