    Google Android One Series Phones To Get Android M Update

    Android One series are an official affiliate of Google, so they will be one of the first smartphones to get the latest update. But this myth was busted last year because Google took almost three months to release the update to Android One series- Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream Uno and Karbonn Sparkle V in India. The good thing was that the company released the latest 5.1 Lollipop, directly skipping three incremental updates (5.0, 5.0.1 and 5.0.2).

    But things are about to change as Google is making arrangements to ensure there is no delay this time. Two weeks ago, it released second generation Android One series Lava Pixel V1 in India, followed by Infinix Hot 2 launch a few days ago in Africa (Ghana, Ivory Coast, Egypt, Kenya and Morocco).

    Google is expected to roll out Android M to:

  • Micromax Canvas A1
  • Spice Dream UNO
  • Karbonn Sparkle V
  • Lava Iris Pixel V1
  • Infinix Hot 2
  • Elephone Devices To Get Android M Update

    The Chinese smartphone maker has confirmed that Elephone P8000 will receive the Android M update in coming months.

    Note: It is just the initial list, which is subject to change anytime once we keep seeing some actual confirmation or leak from the sources. We would try to keep updating this page every time there’s some news flowing around.
