Starting today, honor 5X devices in the US will begin to receive an over-the-air software update. To check for the update, please go to Settings > Updater > Check for updates. This is a staged rollout, so it could take up to a week for your device to receive the update. We plan to upload the full firmware file to our support site for users that want to manually install it. Please leave any feedback on the update in our honor 5X forums.

This new software for the honor (US model KIW-L24) will update the Build number from KIW-L24C567B140 to KIW-L24C567B151. This upgrade will include the below fixes and enhancements:
• Preloaded Amazon applications such as Music, Kindle, Shopping
• Usability improvement of music players 
• Added the ability to set Google Voice as default voicemail
• Android security patches for March 2016

On a related note, honor has recently started testing the Android M update with EMUI 4.0. We will continue to expand our pool of testers, and you can express your interest in the beta test by leaving a comment on the Android M Beta Test Recruitment post.

I've received my phone this week, it has B130 and in the update menu still says that there's no new updates, no B140 or B151.

Users should be able to update by accessing the built in updater on the phone.
Most people just wait for the auto notification before updating, so why not allow
those who want to update right away be able to do so.

Also still waiting on Marshmallow, and signed up in the beta thread long ago,
but never heard from Honor to test it.
Why do you keep promoting the beta if you aren't adding more people?

Also please add OTG function to the phone.
There's no reason to deny users that function when it's already possible.
I could install a different OS that has OTG and it works, but I don't want to
void my warranty and I actually like EMUI. Please...

I really hope the Amazon apps are removeable.
If not then that isn't a nice thing to do to users who don't want
those app taking up valuable storage.

Ok so I did miss the part where it was said that users can download the update directly from the support page, but visiting that page only shows -B130 and -B140... no -B151 yet.

I haven't received this update yet but I really can't wait the hype is really building in me. I told everyone I know about this phone and they've all got the 5x and they love and so do I. This update is the icing on the cake and more. Great company and great product keep up the good work. :)
