Recently, the plans of Huawei to update three of its older devices became officially confirmed. There was an official statement from the company saying that Huawei Ascend P1, Huawei Ascend D1 and Huawei Honor 2 will soon be updated with the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which will replace the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that those phones run on at the moment.
