iOcean has announced plans for updating the iOcean X8 to Android 4.4 KitKat a while ago, but this does not seem to be the only thing the famous phone maker is working on.
As iOcean announced on their Facebook page a short while ago, they are currently working on an update for the current iOcean X8 firmware, based on Android 4.2.2. This update is supposed to fix some well-known issues, like the touch panel sensitivity problem and the missing light on the three touch buttons. Moreover it will improve the performance of the rear camera (hopefully not only that, but the quality as well) and will fix an issue with phone numbers not being recognized.
The update will roll out through OTA soon for every owner of the iOcean X8 0512 model. Other X8 owners will have to wait for the release of a manual update file. No words on the exact date of release by now, but iOcean promised to keep their Facebook page updated.
