Android One handsets to receive Android Lollipop soon
Android One was Google aim to offer great smartphone package at fraction of price at which Nexus line up retails and with Google support it meant updates were going to arrive faster than they normally do and in an interview with India Today, Prashant Bindal, CEO, Spice Mobility said
We plan to provide Lollipop in our Android One devices around January 2015 and the update will be available for all Dream Uno users in India
With the statement one of the vendors involved in creation of Android One handset has confirmed a early 2015 release whereas few internal sources indicate that the users won’t need to hold back for so long as Android One is almost ready and is under testing with release sometime in December.
Whatever the actual timing might be an update itself is good sign but Google should try and deliver an update as fast as possible to send a clear statement about the fast updates schedule for Android One handset is its biggest advantage.
There was no confirmation from Micromax or Karbonn for Canvas A1 and Sparkle V1 Android Lollipop arrival timing yet it can be ascertained going by the 100% similar internals that the update will be arriving almost together for all these devices in a similar fashion as they were launched together.
