Versi says, “working with all of them closely” to get the update out “as soon as possible.” The company still working on the update for carrier version. We don’t think, it would take long for the latest version in carrier version. They might unlock Marshmallow in the mid-January, we are not sure about it.
Guidelines to check for the latest update manually:
- Navigate to setting in the menu section.
- Check for About phone (you can find it in the general category).
- Scroll down and tap on Check for updates.
- It takes 5-10 minutes to track latest firmware update.
- If an update available, don’t forget to backup your data to external memory.
- make sure, you have 90% battery and enough space.
There is no news on Europe M8 consumers, but let’s wait for a couple of weeks. As LlabTooFer tweeted Europe consumers will receive marshmallow before the end of December.
