Micromax Unite series has been one of the very well known ones when it comes to people adapting to them because of the price and many users wanting to try a smartphone for the first time. There are some good phones that are decent for the budget in that range, i.e. Micromax Unite 3, Micromax Unite 4, Unite 4 Pro, and Unite 4 Plus that have been liked and sold a lot in the Indian market.
These are relatively smaller phones and let’s first talk about the specs of these. The Micromax Unite 3 Q372 has a 4.7-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution and when it was launched, it ran the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS in it and multi-language support was also there in it. Now, let’s talk about the Unite 4. It was a slightly larger phone with the 5-inch display and it was a better resolution, i.e. 1280 x 720 pixels. There was also the Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Both the phones had 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage.
Now, the difference between the Unite 3 and Unite 4 was the OS version, which was obvious because of the generation and you would rather expect the phones to receive the latest version of Android on these with some updates. Let us be frank about how Micromax works on the Android updates and whether your Micromax Unite 3 or Unite 4 will receive the Android Nougat update.
Micromax is very slow or sometimes completely ignoring about sending Android updates. And for the Unite series, expect it not to arrive at all. Let’s see why. The Unite 3 itself is still running on Lollipop version and Micromax hasn’t sent an update yet for it to get updated to Android Marshmallow, thus expecting the phone to have the Nougat OS update is well, just like being too optimistic about it.
So, what is the conclusion? Even the flagships and good phones from the company are not getting the proper software updates, neither the major Android ones nor the security updates. So, you don’t need to expect and wait for the Android Nougat update on Micromax Unite 3 and Unite 4 phones.
