One of the top smartphone sellers and manufacturers, Micromax has announced that the firm is soon rolling out the Android 5.0 lollipop update for its Canvas series smartphones.
Micromax Informatics Ltd.’s spokesperson reported that the first device to get the Lolipop update will be the budget smartphone, Micromax Canvas Xpress A99.
Micromax will inform its users by sending push notifications about the upgrade availability, however, if a user wants to manually check for the update then it can be easily checked at Settings > About phone > Software update.
“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,” he further added.
The update to the Canvas phones will be OTA. However, the company hasn’t said a word about the update for its fully-owned subsidiary Yu Televentures’s Yu Yureka Smartphone.
Micromax is rolling out the Lollipop update to beat its competitors and wants to maintain its position as the top smartphone seller in India. As the rival Intex has recently launched its budget phone Aqua Star L that runs on Android Lollipop 5.0 and priced at Rs. 6,990.
Past this, currently the Yu Yureka smartphone is available at ‘Gold Ticket Sale’ at amazon.in.
Today from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, the sale is hosted for the selected customers who have shown their high interest in purchasing the Yu Yureka. The selection criteria is also bit different as it involves a threshold to which number of attempts a user made to buy the device, however, the threshold amount has been kept secret by the retailer.
