Ulefone Be Touch owners can expect Android 5.1 OTA in one month

android 5.1

The Ulefone Be Touch has been shipping out to customers for a few weeks now, and lucky owners can expect an Android 5.1 OTA update in around a months time!

If you have a Ulefone Be Touch then you will already know that OTA updates for bug fixes and general optimizations have already been sent out for the phone. Its a good start which is about to get a whole lot better in 4 weeks time with the release of Android 5.1 Lollipop for the phone.

Android 5.1 brings with it HD voice call features, better security and better multi SIM compatibility. Like 5.9 on the Be Touch, Android 5.1 should remain a stock experience on the Be Touch.

Gizchina News of the week

The Ulefone Be Touch went on sale earlier this month and features a 5-inch 2.5D HD display, 3GB RAM, MT6752 processor, LTE and Sony IMX214 main camera. The alloy and glass phone is similar in design to the iPhone 6 and can be bought for $219.99 online.

      And still waiting for a stable Lollipop. The current Lollipop (20150507) has too many bugs. The Be Pro has caused much pain to those who had the first Lollipop OTA.

      think of a company who sells a 4.4 phone as 5.0, can not update ota, delays update dates, uploads manual update to onedrive that gives simulataneous file not found errors while trying to donwload

        All that you say is false. The ota update working fine, without problems. Now we will wait for lollipop 5.1 update.
