Micromax has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Canvas Doodle 3 over-the-air in India. This is the second handset by Micromax this month to receive the KitKat update, after the Canvas Knight.
Micromax announced the update via a post on its Facebook page, saying, "CAN Doodle on Android Kitkat! All Canvas Doodle 3 users on Android Jelly Bean can now upgrade to Kitkat OS through FOTA! Simply reboot your phone, receive a notification and follow the steps! Wi-Fi connectivity recommended."
Users would have to reboot their Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 handsets before they receive the OS update notification, and have to follow the outlined steps thereafter. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is sized around 387MB.
Launched in April this year, the Micromax Canvas Doodle 3 came with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.
