UMi’s list of smartphones continues to grow and as the companies back catalogue increases owners of older models are wondering if their phones will ever get Android 5.0 Lollipop.

In response to concerns about which UMi phones will receive a Lollipop update, the company have posted a hand drawn roadmap of updates on their Facebook page. For UMi owners there is both good and bad news.

The bad news is that due to limitations caused by Mediatek the UMi Zero is not going to get Android 5.0. Owners of the UMi newer and future models though are al in luck.

Android 5.1 Lollipop is already available for the UMi Hammer via UMi’s RootJoy tool. The UMi eMax will receive Android Lollipop in August while the UMi Iron has Lollipop out of the box. UMi have also gone on to confirm that the UMi Hammer S with USB Type-C will also come with Android 5.1 out of the box.
