Google’s latest Android release – 5.0 Lollipop is one of its biggest ever and comes with a number of changes that make it perhaps the most important Android update yet. Android 5.0 Lollipop has been on devices barely for a few weeks now, and rumors about the next Android update have started coming in already. AndroidPit reports that Google is working on getting the Android 5.1 Lollipop out to devices as early as February next year.
Their trusted sources claim that Google is working hard on getting the first major Lollipop revision out to devices early next year and the update will reportedly include a number of features and improvements. What is more interesting is the fact that the website seems to have received the Android 5.1 changelog which highlights a number of new features and improvements that are expected to be a part of the update.
The Android 5.1 update is expected to bring general improvements in system stability, improved RAM management, sudden force close fix, improved battery management, fixes for excessive consumption of network devices when using Wi-Fi and wireless connections, changes to the Material Design color palette, silent mode option, and addresses certain Android 5.0 bugs like problems with sound, notifications, Okay Google function and some other improvements and changes.
A few new functions are expected to be added to Android 5.1 but AndroidPit sources do not seem to have solid information on those yet. AndroidPit does promise that more information on the Android 5.1 release will be shared as soon as they receive more information on it. A February release for Android 5.1 doesn’t seem very unlikely, but it is certain to add pressure on Android OEMs that haven’t even started the Android 5.0 Lollipop rollout for their flagship devices. So far only Motorola, Samsung, and LG have rolled out Lollipop 5.0 updates to their devices. Most other OEMs are expected to begin the Android 5.0 rollout only by early next year.
What are your expectations from Android 5.1 Lollipop?
