New Delhi: Micromax Unite 2 will receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The update will go live over-the-air beginning April 7, 2015.

The company said that new buyers of the Unite 2 after that date will get Android 5.0 Lollipop preloaded on the handsets, which will now be priced at Rs. 6,299.

Consumers can also trigger the update by going to Settings > About Phone > Software Update.

The update will bring features such as the Material Design UI; improved notification system; Kill Switch and improved security; improved hardware keyboard accessory support (including support for multilingual, emoji input, search key, and improved app and system key chords); improved accessibility features (such as text contrast boost, colour inversion, and enhanced colour differentiation); improved audio, video, and camera capabilities, and improved Internet connectivity everywhere apart from more powerful Bluetooth low energy capabilities

The company also claimed to have sold over 1.5 million units of the Unite 2 since its launch back in May, adding that this translates to three units sold per minute.

Micromax Unite 2 is a dual-SIM smartphone that features a 4.7-inch Bright Graph IPS display with a 480x800 pixel resolution. An unspecified quad-core processor powers the device, clocked at 1.3GHz, along with 1GB of RAM.

Unite 2 comes with a 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash, and has a 2-megapixel fixed focus front-facing camera. Inbuilt storage includes 4GB, and can be expanded to an additional 32GB via microSD card. Micromax Unite 2 supports 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS under its wireless connectivity options. The device is fueled by a 2000mAh battery.

It was the company's first phone to support 21 languages (English, and 20 regional languages) with its Reverie Multilingual Pack. At launch, it was priced at Rs. 6,999 - pegged to compete with the Motorola Moto E - and ran Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box.
