In the meantime, the Indian upgraded their devices to 5.1 Lollipop and now they are able to install Che1-L04C900B330, an OTA update which is based on the latest Android Lollipop update.
The new EMUI 3.1 update came with many changes and enhancements and it has a size of 45.29MB, so we recommend you to download the file while connected to a WiFi network. Also, before starting the installation process, make sure that you have 50 percent of battery left, so the device won’t shut down before the update is installed.
Che1-L04C900B330 is an OTA update, but you can update your Honor 4X through the SD card, as well, but before starting the installation process, back up all your data.
