Honor 4C - Official Android 5.1 Lollipop update available (India)

Honor 4C (the smaller screen sibling of 4X) has been given an official update to Lollipop from Honor India. The update came in the form of a manual update and not OTA as expected on the 21st September. Honor 4C is a device that is internationally similar for all available market thus making this update as an international device update also.

For those who are wondering why the update doesn't come thru OTA, the main reason in the limited space available in the local storage on the device itself. With on 8GB internal memory and with less than 4GB usable, an OTA update would not be the best option as most user might use up the storage and that would make downloading the update impossible. 

The same way of update was done previously with Honor 3C due to the similar issue, Honor 4X would be having the same update methodology as both of these devices as 4X also have very limited internal storage.
