Android Lollipop 5.1.1 starts rolling out to smartphones under Google’s Android One

The Android One smartphone range in India is now receiving the 5.1.1 version of Google’s Lollipop OS, which comes equipped with bug fixes and performance improvements. The update is being rolled out in the form of OTA downloads for the three devices, and is sized at just around 11MB.

Reports of the Micromax Canvas A1, the Spice Dream Uno and the Karbonn Sparkle V getting the new Android 5.1.1 build are coming in large numbers from owners of these headsets. However, installing this update of course doesn’t bring about any easily noticeable changes to the user experience.

That’s because it’s focused more towards improving the Android 5.1 build further, rather than adding new features. It was first released for Nexus devices by Google not too long ago, which is definitely great news for Android One device owners, as this could mean that the upcoming Android M update too will hit their devices soon after it’s available.

Here’s a quick glance at the specs of the Android One smartphones in India:

– Display: 4.5-inch FWVGA IPS display
– OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
– CPU: 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek
– GPU: Mali 400
