Android One users in India are in for some good news, as Google has started rolling out its first Lollipop update in a phased manner so that random devices receive the new OTA update.
According to Android Police, Caesar Sengupta (product management director at Google) has recently announced via GooglePlus that some select Android One phones in India such as the Karbonn Sparkle V, Micromax Canvas A1 and Spice Dream UNO should have already started receiving the Lollipop update.
As the roll-out will happen in a gradual weekly basis, some Android One phones might have to wait a bit longer than the others.
However, as Ceasar insists in his latest GooglePlus post, those who are connected to Google servers via Wi-Fi will have better chances of receiving the notification update than others.
Here is what Caesar had to say while breaking the news to his followers and avid Android One fans on GooglePlus:
To those with +Android One phones in India, here's where we are with the over-the-air (OTA) update that will bring Android Lollipop to you soon. We've already started rolling out Lollipop to a small number of phones in India. This is a gradual process and so each week we'll push the OTA update to more phones selected at random (pro-tip: connecting over WiFi will increase your odds). We thank you again for your patience, and please stay tuned for further updates.
Despite the official confirmation on Google's Lollipop roll-out plans for Android One phones in India, it is not yet clear if the Lollipop update being rolled out would be Android 5.0 or 5.1.
Nevertheless, folks at Android Police seem confident that the update will most likely be the latter, as new Android One phones launching in Indonesia and the Philippines are already running on the latest version of Lollipop or Android 5.1.
