Despite being a shrunken version of last year’s flagship, the Huawei Ascend P8 Lite turned out to be a very popular phone, selling very well around the world. The 5.0″ handset is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, but right now, you can make the update to the latest official Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow B574 Firmware, jumping to a new and improved OS.
Just like any other update, Huawei made this one available over the air (OTA), so you can manually check for it. However, it’s currently rolling out just in Finland, so if you don’t want to wait, we’ve put together a short guide on how to download and install Huawei Ascend P8 Lite (ALE-L21) stock Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow B574 firmware.
The update will give your phone a whole new look, as it will be running EMUI 4.0. Also, you will enjoy new features, like Google Now on Tap, Doze – excellent for those who want to save battery as much as possible – and many other improvements and tweaks.
- Take notice that this firmware is available just for the European version of the Huawei Ascend P8 Lite (ALE-L21). Don’t try installing it on other variant of the phone, as it won’t work.
- Your phone’s battery level needs to be above 70% before starting the update, but our recommendation is to start with a fully charged battery, in order to avoid an accidental shutdown.
