As a quick recap, this handset is one of the 3 modern smartphones from the Chinese electronics giant that has a dual main camera setup. It has a 12 MP Sony IMX386 w/ PDAF sensor paired with a 2 MP depth sensor at the back. This setup is designed to mimic the "bokeh effect" found in higher-end DSLR cameras.
On top of that, this midranger packed with close to premium metal build, stylish aesthetics, good performance, and long battery life.

Going back to the update, it should improve the interface of the handset and we're expecting it to be close to what we saw with P9 Plus and Mate 9. Performance could be smoother, battery life might be longer, and camera software should be better after updating.
Lastly, this beta testing call means one thing, the official Android 7.0 Nougat w/ EMUI 5.0 update for this device is coming soon.
