The two Honor phones we saw at MWC, the Magic V and the Magic4 Pro, came with the most recent Magic UI 6.0. (based on Android 12). Other Honor phones are still running UI version 5.0, but the company has announced a roadmap to bring select models up to date.
Because the roadmap is for China, the global rollout may not occur in the same order. Today, we have some clarity on the global rollout, which will begin with two models: In Q2, the Honor 50 will be updated to Magic UI 6.0. (April-June). At the same time, the Honor 50 Lite will receive it in Q3 (July-September) (July-September).
As is customary, the update will be delivered over the air (OTA). The Honor 50 Pro and 50 SE are not mentioned, but they are unavailable globally (the 50 and 50 Lite have been in Europe since late October). No Honor 60 series models are mentioned either; according to the Chinese roadmap, both the 50 and 60 series should be updated in Q2. Those, however, have yet to leave China.
Magic UI 6.0 includes numerous enhancements to multitasking and privacy and Honor Share (which supports display, keyboard, and mouse sharing between the phone and a laptop, plus easy file transfers between the two). With GPU Turbo X, you can expect improved performance, lower RAM usage, and more stable wireless connectivity.
