Micromax Unite 2 gets Android 5.0 Lollipop update
Indian smartphone maker Micromax has announced an Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its Unite 2 smartphone in the country. The Micromax Unite 2 was one of the first smartphones from the company to get a promised upgrade to Android Lollipop and the update went live over-the-air from April 7, 2015. The update will automatically reach Unite 2 devices; however, users will also be able to trigger it by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Update.
The company has not shared an official update change-log at this point, but users can expect to see the usual Lollipop changes like UI improvements, enhanced notifications, better performance, battery-life improvements and more. Micromax has also revealed that Unite 2, one of its most successful smartphones, has sold over 1.5 million units within a year of launch. The Unite 2 smartphone is an entry-level release and it is selling for around Rs 5600 through online retailers. It comes with a simple design in a choice of attractive colours like pristine white, balmy green, mystic grey and raging red. These rear shells can also be easily swapped for customised options.
“Launched with the aim to remove the language barrier in the country, Unite 2 was the world’s first phone with support for 21 languages. The sales figures of the smartphone highlight the need for a more efficient technological experience, which gives the masses the freedom to communicate through their phones in the comfort of their native language,” a Micromax press release stated.
