Android kitkat update for Micromax MediaTek Devices Scheduled

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.

Android Kitkat For Micromax MediaTek Phones

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 – JuneΒ  [I guess, please correct me if I’m wrong. ]

This is the tweet from MMXNewscaster. I know many of you might be disappointed with this news, let’s wait for the official confirmation.

We will post about this as we receive more information regarding this. I would like everyone to post their views on this post below.

    haha rohit πŸ˜› i hope it may come true

  2. Santhosh says:

    what months in Q2 2014?

  3. Syed Zeeshan says:

    You are right. Q2 means 2nd quarter in an year (April, may, june).
    My question is, Is this news is a official from MMX? And this is sure or expectations.
    My phone is Canvas 2 A110 which is Mediatek device, so my phone will also get this update, Is it right?

  4. I am sort of disappointed to some extent but we should give mmx time as they should on removing all the bugs from their updates..

  5. FAKE NEWS every time. We have been waiting for update from 6 months. This news is just to sale micro max cell phones

  6. Bad move for sure, by MMX. They are launching tons of devices, which is really unnecessary. It’ll only put more and more burden on their service and updates wing.

    With the launch of Moto G all Indian phone manufacturers should take a note that Global brands are able to provide value and anyone would easily jump to their bandwagon considering the trustworthy name attached to it. I was thinking of getting a Canvas for my dad, was about to order the Magnus but general complaints about the phone, its speaker problem made me refrain. The Moto G got launched and ordered a 16GB variant on the very first day!

    Thanks for information

  8. Syed Zeeshan says:

    My phone is Canvas 2, it means my phone is getting update na!. If so iam happy and disappointing on release time.

    • There are some handsets that are not compatible with C-HD and Your device is on 4.1.2 or 4.2.1?

    Thanks for sharing the news related with us. We’re here to inform our customers that the news about Android KitKat is just an rumuor.

    We’re currently not working for providing Android KitKat for the mensioned MMX Canvas series phones, and we’re sorry for it.

    We might not work for the same because we also have to work for our latest devices.

    Hope you all understand!

    Thanks for being with us!

    • Rahul Mehta says:


      We have emailed Micromax to check if the above comment is valid or not however we haven’t received any revert yet.
