    Actually, if you noticed this is same as unite 2 except screen size and battery.
    It is gonna get update of android L so we can expect it for U2 as well. I am a U2 developer. Mtk has closed source policy but i think now they will have to release the surface due to google partnership. If this is released, i am expecting a buzz of mtk development in xda. Also as soon as i get hands on the phone rom, i will port it and also win try to port when it gets L but for that we need a kernel source, let’s see if we could get that
