The Phone runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) which is quite amusing as latest and final build of Android N (Nougat) are being finalized and the marshmallow has already hit the double-digit push to the Oem. I guess there could be an update in the process for F1s or there could be direct OTA update to Android N. It would great to see how the phone performs when it hits the market.
The company will begin the first sale of the F1s from 11th-13th August in numerous stores across Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Trivandrum, Bhopal, Ludhiana, Gurgaon, Vijayawada, Hyderabad, Ghaziabad and Ahmedabad. Consumers can also buy the products online on Amazon.in starting 11th August. The best thing is that the phone is available in the brick and mortar format as well along with Online format. It is really important and beneficial if the phone is made offline available as the e-commerce is still a hoax to some people and for those offline buying options is a really great choice.
