Nokia X supports OTA Updates, but will Nokia Roll Out Any?

The Nokia X is the first Android phone introduced by Nokia and has been the talk of the town because of its software. The Android AOSP software used by Nokia X supports OTA update. That implies Nokia X can receive latest Android version and eliminate bugs.

The AOSP Android based software in Nokia X is based on Android 4.1 jelly bean. Rumors suggested the forked android version to be based on latest Android KitKat. Android KitKat has been optimized for power efficiency and also to run on less system resources (as low as 512 MB RAM)

The Android KitKat would definitely make Nokia X more attractive and efficient. Although KitKat is capable of running on budget Android devices but it is less likely that we will see it on budget Android phones.

Nokia X is among the rare few phones in this price segment which have upgradeable operating system and if Nokia chooses to go for a software upgrade, that will definitely give it a strong edge over the competition. How many phones Nokia sells will be a key determining option in how fast we see the platform updates. For now, the prospect for update seem quite likely.  If you are a Nokia X owner, you can check for updates by going to Settings > About Phone > System updates and tapping Check Now.
