We all know that Android 5.0 Lollipop is pretty neat and that it does bring a lot of nice features, but how many of us are using it? Even more, how many of us have a solid promise that they’ll get it soon? While certain OEMs are taking care of their customers, the wide availability is pretty scarce.
But if you’re a Micromax user, there’s some great news for you. The company has just announced that it is going to bring the latest Android operating system 5.0 Lollipop to its Canvas smartphone series.
The Indian company takes pride in being among the ‘first few smartphone companies across the world to power their portfolio on the latest version of the Android operating system‘. The Canvas Xpress A99 is said to be the first device to get the update. A spokesperson for the company said the following:
“As a brand, we are committed to keep our customers delighted with best in class technologies and experience. Riding on the same thought, we are today rolling out the Android L update with Canvas Xpress, making the overall user experience more efficient and seamless. Micromax thrives on consumer centricity and that is clearly visible through the company’s continued growth trajectory and high recall in consumer mind share.”
The update will be rolled out via OTA, so Micromax owners s will receive a notification when they are able to make the upgrade. Of course, you can also check manually by going to settings>about phone>software update. Indian OEMs seem to be betting a lot on Lollipop as a way to get more sales as we’ve recently seen Intex announce Aqua Star L as the first Lollipop smartphone by an Indian brand.
