OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

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.
