XOLO is reportedly planning to begin the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for XOLO One smartphone on January 16. The update will most likely be released both over-the-air and as a manual download from the company website.
Originally introduced in October last year as a competitor to Android One smartphone, the XOLO One was released with Android 4.4 on-board. By rolling out the Android 5.0 update so quickly, XOLO has even pipped Google, which is yet to release Lollipop for Android One devices.
XOLO business head Sunil Raina told The Economic Times that having a dedicated software team helped them in getting ready the update this quickly. He promised to release Lollipop update for other XOLO phones in the coming days.
“We have sold around 2,00,000 units of Xolo One smartphone since its launch in October last year. The acceptance of this device is too high and with the upgrade coming in, there will be more people interested in buying this device. The update will be an advantage with us,” Raina told ET.
