Telstra ZTE T82 - is there any way to upgrade the o/s to a later version of Android?

Answered

My bank has an app that would simplify many activities I currently cannot do using their web site, but when I tried to install the app, I received the message "This app is not compatible with your device". Sigh. I really don't feel like buying a new phone for one app!

It looks like that phone is only able to support Android 4 OS.
It doesn't look like it is capable of running any newer versions.
Most banks would require Android 5 or above due to security requirements, I know some require A6 and above.
