Micromax is said to have started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat FOTA (firmware over-the-air) update to the older models of Canvas Knight A350, which was launched in March with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Later in June, the company had re-launched the smartphone with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box, without an upgrade for the devices shipped before that date.
As reported by Indian blog Droidguru, the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is now available over-the-air for the Canvas Knight A350 and is about 388MB in size. Users can also manually check the update fromSettings > About Phone.
The changelog visible on the screenshot posted for the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update shows that “Music Album art will now be displayed on the lock screen while playing music,” apart from touting an improved user interface. It also notes that due to risk of incompatibility and their large size, apps like ‘Where is my Perry, Toy Story and Kingsoft office’ will be removed after the upgrade.

It comes with 32GB of inbuilt storage, which is non-expandable. The Canvas Knight sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with OmniVision CameraChip sensor and M8 Largan Lens, while there is a secondary 8-megapixel front-facing camera also onboard.
