As expected Alcatel has rolled out Kitkat update for the OneTouch Idol X+ octa core handset. The X+ handset really did well when it was launched for Rs. 17,000 along with the free boomband. The company had promised the KitKat update.

You can check my review of Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+, it was then running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. And now as promised, Alcatel, has rolled out the KitKat update. Just a few days back some users mentioned that there was some update of less than 100MB, probably some bug fixes.

But now several users have confirmed there is another update of size approx 501MB. It is the KitKat update. The battery backup has improved and free memory is about 1 to 1.3GB of the 2GB RAM.

If you have the Alcatel Idol X+ handset and have updated to the latest Kitkat Android 4.4.x version then do leave your feedback below. The Idol X+ handset is still selling at Rs. 16,999.
