[News] When is my phone getting the Android Lollipop update? Estimated release date

2014-10-16 12:06:11
2903 6



The lucky owners of a Google Nexus or a Play Edition device, might be seeing the newest Android Lollipop ship with their gear, or it very soon after the unveiling, but, as usual, those with popular handsets like theGalaxy S4/S5/Note 4, the LG G2/G3, Xperia Z1/Z2/Z3, or the HTC One M8/M7, will have to wait a fair amount more.


We will wait for info and official manufacturer confirmations on their individual Android Lollipop update schedules, and will post any news as soon as we have them. HTC already announced that it will update theOne and One (M8) within 90 days of receiving the source code from Google, which sounds moderately ambitious for a January timeframe. Motorola also chimed in, slating the fall for its update schedule, which jibes with the Q4 rollout of the newest software.


With Android Lollipop, we are getting a thoroughly revamped interface with the fashionable "flat", but colorful demeanor that many Android manufacturers, like Samsung and LG, adopted for their respective TouchWiz and Optimus overlays. In addition, Google finally overhauled its aging notifications system, which looked pale and barren in stock Android, when compared to Samsung, LG, HTC, or third party efforts you can find in the Play Store. The multitasking options also got a boost with a Google Now-style system, and a 64-bit compiler, as well as a battery-saving Project Volta are all a go, so there's plenty to look forward to on your phone or tablet, hopefully sooner rather than later.




Google




Motorola


The whole Motorola stable you see below will be upgraded to Lollipop with various speeds, depending on carrier and other arrangements, but the Moto G and E, with their stock experience, should be first in line, and then the carrier models will follow suit.







HTC

  • HTC One - within 90 days of receiving the Android Lollipop source code (January the latest)
  • HTC One M8 - within 90 days of receiving the Android Lollipop source code
  • HTC One mini/2 - promised for update, no hard schedule
  • HTC One GPE - in a few weeks
  • HTC One M8 GPE - in a few weeks




Samsung





LG





Sony
