‘Better Late than Never’
Back in February 2014, Cherry Mobile launched its first octa core smartphone – the Cosmos Z2 – with a promise that it will receive an Android 4.4 Kitkat update by March 2014.
Four months passed, Cherry Mobile has finally fulfilled that promise and an OTA (Over the Air) Android 4.4 Kitkat is now available for Cosmos Z2 users.
In defense to the delay, a Cherry Mobile representative explained that MediaTek had a problem delivering the Kitkat update for the MT6592 chipset. MediaTek is the maker of the octa core processor of the Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z2.
If you forgive Cherry Mobile and MediaTek for such a late Kitkat update, you can then proceed to enjoying Android 4.4 Kitkat on you Cosmos Z2!
