a year after its initial release and a couple of substantial price cuts later
the Huawei Ascend Mate7 is
still a pretty tantalizing offer. It just seems that Huawei though well ahead
when designing the Mate and coincidentally or not, it now offers a combination
of quite a few trendy features, like a metal body, spacious 6.0-inch display
and always-on fingerprint reader, all with the added bonus of a dropping price
Better yet, Huawei hasn't forgotten
about the phablet, as evident by the new Android 5.1.1 update that just
popped-up on its support website. The new OS brings an array of core Android
improvements to the handset, as well as the updated EMUI 3.1.
Currently the software package is
available for two of the most popular variants of the Mate7 – the MT7-L09 and
MT7-TL10. Both weigh about 1.20GB, so it should be a more or less complete overhaul.
Over the air roll out should be under way as well, but you could just as easily
use the default updater to get the job done with the downloaded ZIP yourself.
