According to the announcement, the FOTA update will start rolling out in the coming days. It is likely that the update will be rolled out in an incremental manner.

In fact, the company has claimed that it has created “world’s slimmest display bezel” when it comes to laptops. The laptop also comes with a reverse notch.
