Android 5.0 Lollipop Out on 3rd November, Here’s a List of Devices Confirmed to Receive the Update

Browse This Page

A note sent to app developers which was obtained by Android Police informs developers that the Software Development Kit for Android 5.0 is now available. It further advises developers that they can start working and testing their apps on the Android 5.0 platform. It concludes by revealing that Android 5.0 will be available to consumers starting 3rd November.

This is quite predictable as Google has already said that the refreshed Nexus 6 phone and Nexus 9 tablet will be available early November. Both of them, will come loaded with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. It only makes sense for Google to start rolling out the update for existing devices around the same time.

Typically, as we have seen in the past, Google’s own Nexus devices are the first ones to get latest updates, which is followed by other mobile manufacturers. Google has officially confirmed that its entire Nexus range will be updated to Android 5.0 in the coming weeks. HTC has already said that it will start rolling out Android 5.0 on the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 worldwide,  “within 90 days of receiving final software from Google”. Meanwhile, Motorola has revealed that its plans to update the first and second gen Moto X and Moto G and other devices with Android 5.0 later this year.

There’s a whole new look and feel to Android 5.0 Lollipop, courtesy of a concept called Material Design, it paints richer colurs, adds more depth and has more white space. Along with that, it also adds a new notification setup, offers new ways to multitask and has a new battery saving mode. Check out our in-depth article about What to expect from the Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Now the question is, will your device make it to the list where this update will be rolled out? We’ve compiled a handy  list, with all the devices that will get the new Android Lollipop update.

No other phones will get the update before november -december (the phones which don't run on stock Android)..Lets understand the process Google finalises the source code and releases the update for nexus devices or stock devices. Other companies like HTC, samsung, Sony etc get the code and modify it to make it compatible with their software and UI. It takes time specially because of bugs that companies encounter..Some features might not be compatible with their software so they make necessary changes..Also google has been making consistent changes in the code and adding new features ..So it's not an easy process you see..It takes time.

Correct...But I was talking about android update in general and not the Android 5.0 update specifically. Let me give an example to explain myself. Google launched the beta version of Lollipop (back then it was just next gen Android) at Google I/O in June this year. So all the manufacturers had around 4 months to test the new version on their respective devices. So we will be seeing a boom of devices running Android 5.0 when it's launched on 03rd Nov. But each time google will roll out a subsequent update to the Nexus and GPE devices, manufacturers won't have 4 MONTHS. The update would just be instantaneous. Manufacturers like Motorola who run stock android would then be able to roll out updates almost instantly but manufacturers like Samsung, Sony or Lenovo as I was talking about, cannot be that prompt to respond. Moreover owing to the limited number of devices Motorola has you can expect an update to almost each of those. Not so is the case for other manufacturers!

Whatever happens there will be v few Samsung phones getting this as it is they are behind by atleast 2 updates. Their still hottest selling model Grand i9082 is still stuck on Jelly Bean 4.2.2. Its jst not worth spending 17-19k on a Samsung phone & not getting any updates. Its time to look elsewhere.

Now that Lenovo is the parent company of Moto, Can we expect the L update to LEnovo as well? I mean, to midrange phones like S650, S660...

Karan Khurana

I don't think so....Lenovo had made it clear that they would not interfere with the way Motorola is working. Moreover the reason that Motorola is able to pull out updates so early is due to the fact that they believe in delivering "pure" android. So it's easy to update the device! Lenovo on the other hand uses highly customised version of android. So yeah, updates may come but they may never be as prompt as they are on the Motorola phones.
