Since the release of new and fancy Android 4.4 KitKat, Internet has been buzzing with users criticizing OEMs for the delay in providing KitKat OTA Update. HTC also released an Infographic presenting the tedious OTA update process. Amidst all the hype, Indian company Wickedleaks is now the first domestic manufacturer to announce Android KitKat 4.4 update on its popular smartphone Wammy Passion Z+.
Launch of Moto G in early January has been confirmed by Motorola and this phone will also bring the latest flavor of Android in the budget smartphone segment soon enough. The resource efficient Android 4.4 on Wammy passion Z+ means that the performance and battery consumption will also improve.
To refresh your memory, Wammy Passion Z+, is the successor of Wammy Passion Z and was launched in July this year. Wammy Passion Z+ packs MT6589T chipset with 1.5 GHz quad core processor backed by 1 GB or RAM and 4 GB onboard storage. Passion Z+ sports a 5 inch display with Full HD resolution. The Internal storage is extendable to 64 GB. The Dual SIM phone packs a 2500 mAh battery and is available for approx Rs. 15,000. You can read Wammy Passion Z+ Quick Review for further details.
The news is worth rejoicing because we expect other Domestic manufacturer’s to take a hint and soon provide KitKat updates, at least on their Flagship devices. Existing Wammy Passion Z+ users will soon receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update and the new buyers can get the KitKat preinstalled on their smartphones starting from today. Wickedleaks has not yet specified any plans for updating their latest device, Wammy Titan 3, as of yet but is expected to come out soon in early 2014.
