On the 15th of October, Google confirmed the release of the new Android 5.0 Lollipop update. This update will initially roll out for a number of devices, including the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. However, Nexus device owners won’t be the only group getting the new update from Google. It’s evident that details of Android 5.0 Lollipop update are emerging for the likes of Samsung, Sony, HTC and Motorola. To make sure that you’re ready for this great new stride, we break down what we already know about the Android 5.0 Lollipop release date.

Google first announced Android L as the successor to Android KitKat 4.4 way back in June this year, during the tech giant’s annual Google I/O developer event. Back then, the company didn’t confirm a release date and neither a name for this update. They just outlined expected features and gave a hint of what would be coming with this new update. Yesterday, however, Google spilled the beans, and we now know what’s up their sleeves!

With Android 5.0 Lollipop updates flying around the web like hell-fire, we’ll be doing our best to keep you informed on what’s coming next. In this regard, we sought to know how the world’s number one Android manufacturer – Samsung – is taking things on their end. A lot of Galaxy smartphone series users are eager to breathe some fresh air into their smartphone experience!

Although Samsung is still mum on plans to issue an Android 5.0 Lollipop update, we’re hopeful they’ll be saying something soon. Sammy has the habit of keeping things quite until they’re sure about everything else. And in this case, we estimate they’re waiting for Google to finish up with its own releases. We expect the company will have a Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 update any time in the next few months. Stay put to keep abreast of the step-by-step progress in this new development.
