Micromax on Tuesday announced the Android 5.0 Lollipop update rollout for its recently launched Canvas Xpress smartphone, which shipped with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Micromax Canvas Xpress is being pushed out over-the-air (OTA) and users should receive a notification informing them about the update when they connect to the Internet, the company said. Users can also manually check for the update by going to Settings > About phone > Software update on their Canvas Xpress.
While Micromax didn't provide any change log for the update, a company statement said the update "will make the overall user experience" on the Canvas Xpress "more efficient and seamless."
The company also said the Android 5.0 Lollipop update will be rolling out to other Micromax smartphones, though it did not elaborate on the timelines, or indeed, which devices will receive the 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," said Micromax spokesperson in a press statement.
