I’ve observed from past few months our readers asking me about the kitkat update and the kitkat update related post published on our site few months back. MMXNewscaster reported regarding the arrival of Android 4.4 for Micromax devices. At that time the twitter account owner shared an image where a list of handsets were written along with the update they would receive. The tweet also included a text line where it was clearly mentioned that the estimated time of arrival (ETA) is not known.
We expected the update to roll out in the end of January, however it’s mid February now and the update is still not available.On regular basis we receive lot of comments regarding the update for their MMX smartphone. As per my knowledge Micromax till now has provided an update for Micromax Canvas 2 only from Ice cream sandwich to Android 4.1.1. The update for Canvas HD was taken back as users started facing few issues like screen flickering after 4.2.1 update.
They have been concentrating on launching new products every week/month and it’s high time to make their customers even more happy by providing latest Android updates.
As you might be aware that due to certain issues Android 4.3 development was stopped and we reported the same on our site so currently we don’t think MMX would be releasing 4.3 for their smartphones.
Most of the Micromax Canvas devices runs on MediaTek processors except one or two.
As per the recent tweet by MMXNewsCaster it is stated that Android kitkat for Micromax MediaTek devices is scheduled in early Q2 2014.
Q2 2014 = April – June [I guess, please correct me if I’m wrong. ]
Android KitKat update for MediaTek based Micromax devices is scheduled in early Q2 2014.
