Earlier this year in May, Indian smartphone vendor XOLO rolled out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for XOLO Q1000 Opus. The company then promised to update other smartphones in its Q Core series to the latest iteration of Android. Now, XOLO has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for two of its smartphones, the Q1010 and the Q1010i.

The XOLO Q1010 was officially launched in February, while the Q1010i was launched in April, both running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This is the first major update for the smartphones since launch.
