Android 4.4 KitKat Update Arriving on Micromax Canvas Series

We reported in late September Indian OEM Micromax plans to offer an Android 4.3 Jelly Bean upgrade to some of its high-end smartphones, including the Canvas Doodle 2, Canvas 4 and Canvas HD.

However, a few weeks later Micromax reportedly stopped working on bringing this major update to its Android smartphones. No details on the reasons behind Micromax's decision leaked online, but those who owned one of the said devices were left with an unpleasant feeling the Indian company doesn't care too much about software updates. Well, it appears that Micromax had indeed dropped work on Android 4.3, but the reasons will sure please fans of the Indian brand. MMXNewscaster reports Micromax is currently readying Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade for lots of its smartphones in both mid- and high-end range.

According to a leaked internal document, the following Micromax smartphones are eligible for an Android 4.4 KitKat update next year: A250, A240, A210, A200, A117, A116, A116i, A115, A114, A113, A111, A110Q, A110, A101 and A100. As one can see in the picture attached to this article, some of the smartphones mentioned earlier will receive the latest Android 4.4.2 update, while the rest will get Android 4.4 KitKat. For the time being, only the Canvas series of smartphones has been confirmed to receive Android 4.4 KitKat, so Bolt series users may want to switch to one of these devices if they want to take advantage of the latest version of Google's mobile platform.

Unfortunately, the leaked document does not mention any release dates for the update, but we suspect more details will surface in the coming weeks. Hopefully, Micromax will not change its plans for the KitKat update like it did with the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean upgrade. Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming Android 4.4 updates for the Canvas series.
