XOLO One to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update starting January 16

While Android One smartphones are yet to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, one of its competitors, the XOLO One will soon start receiving the major update.


The XOLO One was launched in October to compete with the Android One devices. The device had Android 4.4 KitKat on-board at launch and now, the company bringing device will receive the latest Android version surpassing even Google’s update efforts. Reportedly, XOLO plans to roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update starting January 16.

The news comes from Sunil Raina, who told The Economic Times, “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.”

We can expect the update to be available for the XOLO One over-the-air (OTA) or as a manual download. We can also expect other XOLO devices to get the update in the coming weeks.
