You may be excited that your device is finally getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update but others are already getting Android 5.0.1 (Moto E, and Moto 4 with 4G LTE, Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4) and Android 5.0.2 (LG G2 from T-Mobile and AT&T, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Nexus 7, original Moto X). Several mobile devices have even received Android 5.1 already like the Nexus 5Nexus Player, HTC One (M7), Moto G GPE,  LG G Pad 8.3 GPE, and the Sony Z Ultra GPE. And to further burst your bubble, sorry, but Android 5.1.1 is almost ready.

Google can confuse us with all these software update versions and build numbers but don't worry, the Android 5.1.1 isn't official yet so you can have time to catch up. Google has not yet officially announced the Android 5.1.1 release. It was only spotted on an Android Audio Latency info page showing the build numbers LMY47S and LMY47W are ready for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi variant).

Android 5.1.1

The Google Nexus 9 has yet to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop but the Nexus 7 is already enjoying Android 5.1 despite reports of units being bricked after the software update. This Android 5.1.1 being sighted on an official Android page also means a new version is coming soon.

It may still be under development and may just be a minor but Google is set to make an announcement. Before it happens, we hope to see the Nexus 9 getting some Android 5.1 sweetness but then again it's way better if it gets the Android 5.1.1 version as its first taste of Lollipop.

    The Nexus 9 shipped with Android 5.0. Still waiting for its update to 5.1.x

    I read the article twice to make sure but the author is incorrect on the Nexus 9 not having Lollipop. It was one of the first with Lollipop but last with 5.1. A quick update to 5.1.1 would be nice and very welcome.

    I’ve been reading about 5.1 coming to the 2013 wifi N7 for over a month now.

    And the Nexus 9 launched with 5.0. It was the flagship tablet for Lollipop, so that line about it not yet receiving Lollipop is clearly a typo. Must mean 5.1.
