Android One smartphones getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in India


Android 6.0 Marshmallow Android One

Google started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Nexus devices starting from yesterday. The Nexus devices are yet to receive the over-the-air update, but there are several reports saying that Android One smartphones – Micromax Canvas A1, Spice Dream UNO Mi-498 and Karbonn Sparkle V are getting the Android 6.0 update in India. No details about the update for Lava Pixel V1.

These smartphones got Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) update in June and received Android 5.1 update directly from Android 4.4 (Kitkat), back in March. The Android 6.0 concentrates on App Permissions, Web Experience, App Links, Mobile Payments, Fingerprint Support and Power & Charging. It also brings new Doze battery saving feature that uses motion detection to cut off background activity when the phone is in standby, but it will still wake up for important events like alarms.

The Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) OTA (over-the-air) update is 338.1MB for all the Android One smartphones which share the same ROM. We are yet to receive the Android 6.0 update on our Android devices, so the update will gradually roll out for all the users.

Thanks onkar
