Back in December, a rumor hinted at the launch of the Android 5.1 operating system in February, and it seems we may get to see the new version very soon.
Recently, the Google Nexus 5 running the Android 5.1 was spotted on Geekbench benchmarking website, hinting of a possibility that Google may already be testing the new operating system.
The new update is expected to come with a handful of new features and improvements. Google is expected to bring back the silent mode which disappeared with the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Furthermore, the update is also expected to feature improved RAM management, stability improvements, fixes for notification problems, minor changes to Material Design color palette, fix for problems with “Okay Google” command and much more.
There’s no word about the roll out date for devices, but it shouldn’t be too far off, at least for the Nexus devices. The handsets from other manufacturers may have to wait a little longer since they tend to add their own customizations and bloatware to the operating system before it is pushed to devices. We’ll update you as soon as Google starts rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update for its handsets.Filed Under: Android News, Top News
