Android One in India to get Android 5.1 Lollipop update soon

Google finally acknowledges Android Lollipop update coming to Android One smartphones in India in the “next few weeks”. The company also launched three new Android One smartphones in Indonesia which runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.


We reported a couple of weeks back that Android One would receive Android 5.0 Lollipop treatment as soon as end of January or early February. It looks like Android One smartphones in India will likely get Android 5.1 Lollipop update directly as is the case with the new phones in Indonesia.

If you purchased an Android One device in order to get the latest updates, you must be wondering where the hell is “Android 5.0 Lollipop” update. I mean that is one of the main reason why you purchased an Android One smartphone. You will be more upset when you see the likes of Xolo One and Motorola Moto G getting the update before you. Moto G getting updated before Android One is acceptable but Xolo One getting Lollipop update? Even Moto E is undergoing soak test for Lollipop in India and will be rolled out soon.

Android One users might be one up against all these devices as it looks to be getting Android 5.1 Lollipop update while the others are mostly on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The OTA update will be rolled out likely in phases over the “next few weeks”. So, happy days are here for the Android One owners. Well, almost!

In India, the Micromax Canvas A1Spice Dream Uno and Karbonn Sparkle V Android One smartphones are available on AmazonFlipkart and Snapdeal respectively.
