The Huawei Mate 8 was released not too long ago, and for a lot of people represented the Chinese manufacturer's own version of the Nexus 6P. It's a little larger with its 6.0-inch display, and the camera is a little different, but the fingerprint sensor and overall build make it clear the two devices share common DNA. One thing that Huawei has often been criticized for is their lack of attention where software updates are concerned, but the Mate 8's update to the February security update could be another sign that Huawei is trying to turn things around where their software is concerned.

If you are a Mate 8 owner, you should see an OTA update notification soon, if not already. However, if you're feeling impatient, you can also check for the update manually by heading to your handset's settings menu.

We recently heard that the Huawei Honor 7 and Huawei P8 will be getting the Marshmallow update through Europe, which should put a smile on many a face across the pond, but whether or not Huawei keep up their new focus to software updates throughout the year ahead remains unclear. Hopefully, working with Google on the Nexus 6P has had a positive effect on how the Chinese name treats software updates and sees them as more important now.
