Android One Phones in India to Get Lollipop Update Next Week: Google


19 Aug 2014
Reaction score

After much speculation and a fair bit of controversy, a Google spokesperson on Wednesday said the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Android One smartphones in India will roll out in the next week or so. The update will be made available for all three Android One handsets - Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V, and Spice Dream Uno - simultaneously.

The spokesperson said no specific details about the rollout of the Android 5.0 Lollipop to other Android One smartphones in countries could be shared at the moment, though more information can be expected next week.

Despite promising Android One users at launch they would be the 'first to receive updates', Google has not kept its word, with companies like Motorola, HTC and Samsung managing to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to some of their smartphones already. Of course, the Nexus series of smartphones and tablets received their updates first, with the 2013 Nexus 5 getting its update in December. Three Android One smartphones have been launched in India thus far. The Karbonn Sparkle V, Micromax Canvas A1, and Spice Dream Uno are all dual-SIM smartphones that share some common specifications: a 4.5-inch (480x854 pixels) IPS FWVGA display; 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor; 1GB of RAM, 4GB of inbuilt storage; expandable storage support via microSD card (up to 32GB); a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash; a 2-megapixel front camera; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, and a 1700mAh battery.
