The Huawei P8 lite launched earlier this summer with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box. In fact, we mentioned in our hands-on that we thought it was not excusable to release a new phone with KitKat. Now the company has started rolling out an over-the-air update for the unlocked smartphone that finally brings it up to Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Huawei's official support page has more info on the update, including instructions on how to install the file, and even on how to downgrade from Lollipop back to KitKat if you don't like this upgrade in the OS. It adds:
- Upgrade operations will erase user data. It is recommended you back-up your data to external SD card prior to flashing
- This Android L release is designed for the Huawei P8 lite, model ALE-L04, build ALE-L04V100R001C00B124
- A micro SD card is required to upgrade. It is recommended to use a micro SD card with 4GB of free space
