Android One

Google has announced that it is rolling out the Lollipop update to Android One handsets in India. The OTA update will be arriving in stages and will be delivered weekly, which means that not all users will receive the update at once.

All three Android One devices currently on sale in the country – Micromax's Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V and Spice Dream Uno – will be getting the update shortly. According to Google's product management director Caesar Sengupta:

To those with +Android One phones in India, here's where we are with the over-the-air (OTA) update that will bring Android Lollipop to you soon. We've already started rolling out Lollipop to a small number of phones in India. This is a gradual process and so each week we'll push the OTA update to more phones selected at random (pro-tip: connecting over WiFi will increase your odds).

Sengupta did not make any reference to the Lollipop version that is being rolled out to the devices, but with Android 5.1 Lollipop surfacing on Android One devices in Indonesia last month, it is possible that the handsets in India will make the switch to Android 5.1 as well.

Indian readers, have you managed to get the update on your Android One handset? If so, how are you liking the changes?
