Canvas Xpress getting Android Lollipop, coming to other Micromax devices soon

The recently launched Micromax Canvas Xpress is the latest smartphone in India to have the Android 5.0 Lollipop update rolled out for it, and its maker isn’t stopping at just that. It has announced that its other devices too are set to be blessed with the new software, although it has not revealed their names and release dates.

The Micromax Canvas Xpress is getting its Lollipop treat in an OTA fashion, which means owners of the smartphone will see a notification for it once it has arrived for their handsets. The company hasn’t released a changelog for this update, but the main improvements to the OS like the ART runtime, the new notifications system, a fresh quick settings menu and more will definitely form part of it.

We’re not certain as to why the Canvas Xpress has been chosen by the company to be its first phone to get an Android Lollipop update, especially since its other high-end devices are still reeling on KitKat. This phone was launched in December last year with Android 4.4.2 KitKat onboard.
