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 notification on 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 charge may incur on your device.
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.
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 it will be displayed and if there is no update then it will display the same message.
