Google has released the Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is expected to make its way to the entire Nexus line up, and Google Play edition devices in the coming months.
According to a new report, Google will release the over-the-air Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 7 (WiFi) and Nexus 10 on November 3rd, followed by other devices in the coming weeks.
It’s a little strange that more recent devices such as the Nexus 5 will not get the update first, or even the Nexus 4. Even the LTE version of the Nexus 7 tablet is also tipped to get the update in the coming months after the WiFi versions. The report surfaced from Android Police who revealed this information citing two of their sources who they trust. “We’re confident in our sources and the quality of the information provided on this.” they said in a blog post.
The latest Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with plethora of improvements and new features, including Google’s new Material design which brings visual enhancements to the operating system. Additionally, it also improves the battery life, improved notifications, support for 64-bit architecture and much more.
There’s no official confirmation from Google at the moment about the exact roll out date. We’ll update you as soon as it starts rolling out.
