Lava XOLO X900 has been recently discounted in India in order to improve the smartphone’s sales. However, the fact that the device is still stuck on an older version of Android, namely Gingerbread, makes customers a bit reluctant.Even though Lava and Intel promised the XOLO X900 will get the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update soon, it took the companies several months to keep their promise. Oh well, better late than never.
Today, Lava officially announced on the smartphone’s Facebook page the long-awaited Android 4.0 ICS update for XOLO X900 is now available for download. For more details check out XOLO X900’s support page here.
“We are pleased to announce that Android v4.0 ICS upgrade is now available on XOLO X900. We thank all our XOLO X900 customers for their patience and truly hope that the ICS upgrade will make your smartphone experience even more enjoyable.”
Lava XOLO X900 owners can download and install the update OTA (over the air) or via PC, though they will need a third-party software installed on their computer if they choose the latter.
Keep in mind that this update has around 220MB in size, so make sure you have a stable Wi-Fi connection before attempting to upgrade.
Customers who did not go for the XOLO X900 due to the fact that it’s still powered by an older version of Android can now purchase the smartphone for Rs 17,500 (335 USD or 260 EUR) outright via most leading retailers across the country.
The first Intel-powered Android smartphone available on the market, Lava XOLO X900 is equipped with a 1.6 GHz single-core Atom Z2460 processor, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM.
The handset sports a decent 4.03-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 16GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel rear photo snapper with autofocus and LED flash, as well as a secondary 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video calls.
