As stated by The Mobile Indian earlier, Xolo has updated its Xolo One smartphone to Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Xolo had promised to issue the update during its launch itself last October. At 6,599, the Xolo One thus now becomes the cheapest Android Lollipop device as none of the Android One devices nor Moto E have got the latest software.
“The update has been rolled out via OTA (over-the-air) and it can also be manually downloaded from the official XOLO support site. XOLO Users can download the OTA files on to their PC and transfer the same to their phone to install it.
