Update 16-1-15: Xolo has stared rolling out Lollipop update for Xolo One
Xolo has announced that the firm’s budget smartphone called Xolo One that was launched in October will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update starting from this week. Well, the update is all set to be rolled out from January 16 and will head to all the devices launched by the vendor.
Undoubtedly, Xolo can handle rolling out the update to its offerings as the vendor has been doing the same promptly with KitKat as well. But the update came with numerous bugs and hence, we hope Xolo rolls out the Lollipop update after enough testing that the users do not lodge complaints related to performance after upgrading their device.
The Xolo One was launched by the vendor in order to compete with the Android One smartphones and it carries a pricing of Rs 6,599. While announcing the handset, Xolo made it clear that the device will be capable of upgrading to Lollipop and now, the same is arriving in a couple of days.
Notably, the Android One smartphones that were slated to receive firmware updates timely are yet to get a taste of Lollipop. Also, the Xolo One will be the first domestic branded smartphone to receive Lollipop update in India. Anyways, it is suggested that the users of the smartphone wait for feedback on the update and its impact on performance of the device before proceeding with it.
To refresh on the specifications, the Xolo One houses a 4.5 inch FWVGA IPS display and is equipped with a 1.3 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6582M processor teamed up with 1 GB of RAM. There is 8 GB of native storage space that can be expanded up to 32 GB using a micro SD card.
The imaging department of the Xolo One is taken care of by a 5 MP fixed focus rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front facing selfie snapper. Other aspects of the device include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, dual SIM support and a 1,700 mAh battery that is claimed to pump in up to 8 hours of talk time and 377 hours of standby time.
