Some Android One Devices Are Already Getting Android 6.0.1 Update

Android One is Google’s program that aims to bring affordable smartphones with decent specs to the low end market segment. This is more of the Nexus program but for affordable smartphones. Here in Kenya, Android One is available with the Infinix Hot 2 that was launched back in August.

One thing that makes Android One devices (and even Nexus devices) appealing to most people is the stock Android OS they normally come with. With this, they are always able to get the latest Android updates within a month (or less) after Google makes them available.

Android One devices started getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow back in October but the update is still not available for the Infinix Hot 2 which is the first Android One device officially launched in Africa. My guess is that the update will start rolling out later this year or early next year.

As we wait for the Marshmallow update, some Android One users are already getting the next update (Android 6.0.1). This is a small update that brings some stability improvements and bug fixes. The update also brings Google’s security patch for December.

At the moment, this update is only available for the One Cherry Mobile G1, which is an Android One device, available in the Philippines. For those in other countries (Kenya included) we should be expecting the Marshmallow update anytime soon.
