When is Lollipop update for Ascend Mate 7 16 Gb coming to Africa?


AC Question


I am using a Ascend Mate 7 (MT7-L09) and I am in Zambia. No OTA available at the moment. If I install lollipop update from another region, will it work and do I risk bricking my phone?

Thanks for your help.

I would not install an update from another region.

Contact the manufacturer for more details on the update
