Lava Iris X8 has started receiving Android 5.1 Lollipop update. This smartphone was launched in February and had come with Android Kitkat 4.4 pre-installed in it. The Lava Iris X8 sports a 5-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 1080 x 720 pixels. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Octa-Core processor supported by 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal memory which can be further expanded using microSD card slot.
The Lava Iris X8 comes with 8-Megapixel rear camera with Auto-focus and LED flash, it also sports a 3MP front facing camera. The device is powered by a 2500mAh battery. Lava is sending out the update to Lava Iris X8 as an OTA or Over the Air update which can be checked on your device by going to Menu -> Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates, here your phone will automatically check for the update and will start the download and installation automatically. Make sure that you have backed up your data stored in your device before going for the upgrade, if you lose any data during the upgrade getting it back is very difficult.
With Android Lollipop, you get better Notifications on the Lock screen which was not possible with Android Kitkat. You can get a dialer shortcut as well in the lock screen. You can access Notifications menu from the lock screen itself like WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplane mode, Auto Rotate Flashlight etc. Many other features also can be added with the personal skins from Lava. It is overall more refined, faster and smoother than Kitkat.
The Lollipop update will be released in batches if you are an Iris X8 user you need to keep checking the System Updates section for the Update which will be arriving shortly if you have not received it yet.
