Spice has announced the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for the Spice Dream Uno and Spice Dream Uno H smartphones, its Android One
offerings in the country.
The company in a press note revealed that the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for both the Spice Android One phones will start rolling out in batches over the next few days.
The domestic handset brand however has not revealed the changelog for the update. It notes, "The Android Lollipop 5.1 update is the latest version of Android operating system and offers a significantly improved smartphone experience with an enhanced visual appeal, user interface and general improvements in system stability."
Both Spice Dream Uno and Spice Dream Uno H ran Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.
So far there has been no official announcement regarding the rollout of Android 5.1 Lollipop; though Google released Android One smartphones in Indonesia running Android Lollipop build 5.1 out-of-the-box.
A leaked changelog for Android 5.1 tipped that the build brought improvements corresponding to bugs that were reported since Android 5.0 Lollipop release: addition of silent mode; improvements in system stability; improved RAM management; fixes for sudden app closures; improved battery management; excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed; fixes for issues with wireless connections; fixes for Ok Google function; fixes for notifications problems; some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed, and changes in the Material Design colour palette.
Android One phones in India started receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the last week of February. Despite Google's promise to deliver the Android updates soon after they are released to Android One phones; the company has disappointed consumers with months of delay in Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
Last month, Spice Mobility launched its new Android One smartphone in Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
Commenting on the rollout of update, Prashant Bindal, CEO, Spice Mobility Ltd said, "In line with our brand promise "Always the latest", we are delighted to be the first player to release the Android Lollipop 5.1 update, exclusively for our Spice Dream Uno users in India."
