Few weeks back, trusted source for Micromax leaks, MMXNewscaster unveiled that Micromax is working on Android 4.4 KitKat update for all popular phones in Canvas Series and today’s tweet mentions that the Android 4.4 KitKat update will arrive in early second quarter of 2014.


The new and fancy Android 4.4 KitKat is designed to eliminate Fragmentation problem in Android eco system, which implies that it is resource efficient and will work even with devices housing 512 MB RAM. Thus KitKat update is expected to enhance the performance of these devices.


Another advantage of Android 4.4 KitKat, is that it is designed for power optimization with sensor and WiFi batching which will provide you with better battery efficiency, a feature most appreciated on Canvas devices.
