I *highly* doubt it. These inexpensive dual-boot devices are usually "what you get is what you get" devices. Usually, no upgrades are provided by the manufacturer- ever. Hell, you're lucky to get any real support for the devices at all from the manufacturer. :-) if it weren't for forums like this, these devices would never live up to their potential.
Now as to why those choose Android 5.1, I have no idea. Maybe it was the most popular version when they designed the devices?
That all being said, Android 5.x is fine... Also, from what I've seen, RemixOS actually appears to run faster than stock Android (they are both based on 5.1). Since I can now run Nova launcher on RemixOS, I get all of the advantages of RemixOS (windowing, performance, etc) while also retaining the ability to use widgets and third-party launchers (there is a trick to get 3rd party launchers/widgets working with RemixOS). It's the perfect combination for these devices! While I haven't yet switched to RemixOS on my Chuwi Hi12, I have it on my Onda Obook 11 Plus and it runs *fantastically* on that device with Nova launcher. I will be converting my Hi12 to RemixOS very soon - assuming my replacement keyboard works better than the one I have now....
