To owners of the Flare S3 and S3 Lite, Cherry Mobile wants you to greet the New Year by giving your gadgets an Android Lollipop makeover. Other handsets are also confirmed to receive the update.
Per Cherry Mobile’s announcement, here are the phones with Android Lollipop already available as an over-the-air (OTA) update: the Flare S3, Flare S3 Lite and Touch XL. It’s actually nice of Cherry Mobile to update the Flare S3, a 5-inch handset released in 2014; many smartphones from local brands are often neglected when it comes to Android updates, even more so with smartphones that are already more than a year old.
Meanwhile, mobile users who have Flare S3 Mini, Flare S3 Octa and Flare S3 Power will have to wait for longer. Cherry Mobile has marked their Android Lollipop update only as “Confirmed 2016” with no specific month mentioned.
And finally, to Flare X users, you can either wait for the OTA update or use the SD card method to upgrade your phone’s Android platform to 5.1 Lollipop. The former option is what we recommend as the safer router, because things can get ugly if you fail to follow the instructions for the latter.
