Are you happy with the new Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android 5.0 Lollipop announcement? Your next question will probably be the Lollipop software update schedule for your current smartphone, which some manufacturers will not tell you until the software update is ready.
Right after the Google announcements, Motorola has confirmed that it will bring the Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its latest devices. These devices include the Moto X (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.), Moto G (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.), Moto G with 4G LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini. No specific schedule is available now. You can also check your Motorola device’s current status on its software upgrade page.
HTC didn’t have a Android 5.0 Lollipop software update announcement today, but remember the “HTC Advantage” announced during Google IO in June? HTC has promised to bring the Android L update to all HTC One M8 and One M7 – within 90 days after it has received the final software from google. For HTC smartphones users in the US, you can check all the software update status on this page.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is bringing tons of new features, responsive Material design, better battery performance and security to your Android smartphones, but, at the same time, is meaningless if your smartphone didn’t get an update. Hopefully other manufacturers will be more transparent on their software roll out plan!
