Google’s much hyped low-cost Android One platform is finally getting the Lollipop treatment.
While the program failed to get as much traction as had been anticipated, Google is keeping its end of the promise and is rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for Android One devices.
Google India made the announcement via its official twitter handle.
So far only three Android One devices have made their way to India – the Karbonn Sparkle V, Micromax Canvas A1 and Spice Dream Uno.
Google is claiming a 2x performance bump with Lollipop on Android One devices, while users will also benefit from longer battery life with Android 5.0’s battery-saver mode.
It is yet to be seen how Google salvages its Android One program in India, maybe the update could serve as a much needed shot in the arm?
