Huawei promises software updates for its devices up to 2 years
One of the crucial and most overlooked aspect of a smartphone, especially for budget devices, is its software version. Manufacturers tend to release a number of devices with dead operating systems. But, Huawei wants to step up against this and has a promise for its users this year.
Taylor Wimberly of Huawei Device USA has posted on Google+ to announce the company’s plan to commit to a 2-year time frame of software updates. This is for 24 months from the time of the launch of devices, much like what Google did with their Android One devices. Also, within the first 12 months, they’ll be seeding an update at least once every three months.
As with Android’s monthly security patch, they’ll keep to provide it “in a timely manner” even after the timeframe of the 24-month promise for a device. For now, Honor 8 is the company’s latest device to be released in the market and also the image used for the said post, so most probably, it will be the first device to be well taken care of in terms of software for 2 years.
