Xolo has released Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its Xolo Q610s model smartphone in India. The update is available on company website (that too, in coming days) and not as over-the-air (as of now).
Well, quite strange and pleasing, the Lollipop update is available only for select smartphones, mostly of them of HTC, Motorola, etc. The Android 5.0 version debuted with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 last year, is still a under development for various other manufacturers.

The company has not shared the changelog yet. Users will see a whole lot of exciting new features including a number of animations, material design based UI, new notification design, etc.
