Check Software Update Manually

As we already mentioned, most of the software OTA update always roll-out in batches. So, some times the OTA update notification can be delayed. That’s why we will recommend you to check for OTA updates manually on your device via Settings > About Phone > Software update.


If you will find that there is a new firmware update is available and ready to download, just follow the on-screen instructions and install it. Alternatively, you can go to the Software Updater app as well to check updates.

Ensure that the phone has enough battery level to download and install the OTA update. It’s recommended to use the Wi-Fi connectivity for a faster and stable download.
