Huawei is not known for having devices in the US market, but the Ascend Mate 2 is an exception and if you are rocking that handset you can look forward to receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop. If you do have the Ascend Mate 2 then you will know full well that you were left behind when Google rolled out Android 4.4 KitKat with Huawei deciding to keep the smartphone way back on Jelly Bean.

The Chinese giant has now said that those with an Ascend Mate 2 can forget about ever getting KitKat, but don't get too disappointed as the company revealed would update the handset to Android 5.0 Lollipop during the first few months of 2015.

Of course, that means you will have to put up with good old Android 4.3, which is still the most popular Android build by market share by the way. The upside is that you can look forward to your Ascend Mate 2 getting a lick of the Lollipop soon.

Released in January this year, the Ascend Mate 2 surprised many by carrying Jelly Bean when Android 4.4 KitKat had already been released. Aside from that puzzlement, the phablet is a solid enough budget effort that comes with a massive 6.1-inch screen with a 720p resolution, while elsewhere there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.6GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front facer. It has 16GB of on board storage and a SD card slot.
