BLU Phone Software Update:

Talking about the software update on BLU mobiles, there are often regular updates available. We would be tracking them up here.

How to Check for BLU OTA Update

If you want to download the latest Android update on your BLU Mobile phone, there are two ways:

Via Update Notification

If you have received any notification about the software update then please tap on it and download the firmware. Normally all the OEM send update notifications to the consumer handset so that they are notified about the update availability.

It's recommended to connect your device to available Wi-Fi because data charges may incur on your device. (Recommended Reading: Wi-Fi tethering on BLU)

Your device will restart several times during this software update process. So please be patient as it can take more than 15-20 minutes of your time, depends on the update file size.

Manual Update

If you haven't received any update notification then you can manually check for the software availability by going through Settings > About Device and then tap on Software Update/Upgrade.

If the updates are available they will be displayed and if there is no update then it will display the same message.

Do BLU Phones get Android Updates?

BLU Phone has been often criticized for now delivering Android updates on their smartphones. I want to clarify one thing here that BLU sells entry-level phones and at this price tag, no OEMs delivers the updates until especially mentioned. I am not defending BLU Products instead I am telling the truth.

Still BLU has delivered beta updates to Bold N1, Android 10 beta to BLU G9 Pro, and monthly updates to $200 mobiles.

BLU Phone Wireless Update:

Gone are the days you need PC software and USB cable for updating your mobile phone. You can just now go wireless to download the firmware.

Official Android Updates

BLU Android 12 Update

The Android 12 version is yet to get any news. You can read more about Android 12 version update & development.

BLU Android 11 Update

The Mountain View search engine giant has planned to unveil the 2020 version of Android as Android 11 and the development of it has begun with the launch of the first Developer Preview available since 20 February 2020. Since then three developer previews have been released.

And here is the list of eligible phones to get the Android 11 update.

BLU Android 10 Phones:

BLU Products and Bold Phone has planned to make available the Android 10 update to eligible phones. You can learn more about it here. As of now, BLU has confirmed only one phone will get the Android 10 update and that too it's not a BLU phone but it's in the new BOLD subsidiary. It's -

Among the expected devices to receive this update are BLU Vivo XL5, BLU G9 Pro, BLU View 1, and BLU G9.

Sadly BLU has disappointed every user after promising the Android 10 update for Bold N1. Users on Reddit and other communities have kept on asking about the same. I too have concerns because it's already June and Google is about to launch a new Android 11 version. Still, there are no signs of an update for this device.

BLU Android Pie Mobiles

The Android Pie is the latest version of Android and it will be available to some of the BLU phones launched in 2018.

Here check out the list of BLU Android Pie phones.

BLU Android Security Update

As reported by several users, May 2020 security update has been rolled out to Bold N1 mobile.

It was reported in April 2019, that BLU G9 has received the April 2019 Android security update.

The reality of BLU Software Upgrades

And another fact to reality is that the BLU delivers a lesser number of software updates to their devices but with the recent launch of flagship BLU Vivo XI and Vivo XI+, the company's CEO Samuel Ohev Zion has promised software upgrade too. Here are the reasons -

  • No Updates for Entry Level Phones
    : Nobody promises software update for phones under $100 or less. Please tell if any phone apart from Nokia 1 Series receives major OS updates.

Things are changing but they are slow and steady. Still, we are waiting for the Android Pie upgrade to the Vivo XI phone.

BLU Phone Update Failed:

When an update gets failed there is something wrong with the update itself or your device has some problem. Apart from retrying there is nothing that you can do.

In order to troubleshoot such issues, you will have to check the following -

  • Sufficient Space: You should have sufficient space on your phone in order to download the firmware package.
  • Data or Wi-Fi: One should ensure that you have enough data available in order to download the update. It's better to connect to Wi-Fi while updating your device.
  • Data Limits: Please make sure that you don't have set any data limits.

Note: If you are unable to boot after update, then try to hard reset your phone or check out our BLU phone troubleshooting guide.
