Lenovo Vibe Z Starts Receiving Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update


Lenovo had announced it would start the roll-out of Android 4.4 KitKat for the Vibe Z smartphone in a phased manner starting from the last week of May. It seems the Lenovo Vibe Z is now finally getting the Android KitKat update in Malaysia.

Soyacincau reports that some Vibe Z users in Malaysia are receiving Android 4.4.2 KitKat update and also notes that the update is about 1.2GB in size. The report claims that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat for Vibe Z is now available OTA (over-the-air).

We are yet to hear any updates from the Chinese handset maker when the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update will reach Indian users.

According to Lenovo, the Android 4.4 KitKat update for Vibe Z brings improved 4k video playback compatibility. In addition, the update also boosts the UI transitions, such as adding widgets to the home screen easy.

With the Android 4.4 KitKat update, the Vibe Z will also offer better management of the multi-window mode on the handset. Other features which will be added with the update include enhanced notification access, wireless printing capability, new theme centre, automatic profile changer and expanded accessibility APIs.

Notably, the company had also announced the Android 4.4 KitKat update for Lenovo Vibe X, shortly before it announced a Rs. 3,000 price cut for the phone in India.

The Vibe Z reached the Indian market earlier this year, and has been available at Rs. 35,999. The Lenovo Vibe Z at launch ran Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.
