Xolo has released the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for its Q700S
smartphone, which was launched
with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in January.
It's worth noting that the company had released (via FoneArena) a beta version of the Android 4.4 KitKat release for the Xolo Q700S in June, and had promised a stable release in the coming weeks.
The update to Xolo Q700S is rolling-out over-the-air (OTA), and can also be manually downloaded from the official Xolo support site.
Xolo also listed instructions for updating the Q700S to Android 4.4.2 KitKat manually. Users will have to download the update file from the download link to a computer and will have to rename the file to 'update.zip' from 'update_KitKat' before transferring it to the Q700S's microSD card. Users will then have to exploit company's preloaded Xolo Care app to check for updates in the microSD card. Next, users will have to choose 'update.zip' file and then the phone will reboot automatically, installing the update on start-up.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update brings a new phone dialler application to the Q700S, and brings SMS/MMS support to Google Hangouts, amongst various other changes. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed a detailed changelog for the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on Xolo Q700S, or any company-specific features the update will bring.
The domestic handset maker recently rolled-out the Android 4.4 KitKat updates for the Xolo Q1010 and Xolo Q1010i.
The company had announced Android 4.4 KitKat update for its smartphones - Q700S, Q1010i, Q1010, and Q3000 in May. There has been no detail as of now about the Q3000's Android 4.4 KitKat update.
On Tuesday, Xolo unveiled its brand new Hive UI, which is the company's take on Android, alongside the first smartphone running the Hive UI - the Xolo 8X-1000. Xolo also launched the A1000s and Play 8X-1200 smartphones in the country.
