Android 5.0 Lollipop On Nov 3 Release Date Confirmed
The Android 5.0 Lollipop on November 3rd; release date has been confirmed by Google on the Android Developers Blog. Google has announced that the Nexus 9 will be the first device to get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on Nov. 3. It will be followed by the Nexus 6, the Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Nexus 4.
We already reported the exact date. Starting today, you can download the full release of the Android 5.0 SDK, along with updated developer images for Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), ADT-1, and the Android emulator.
Of course, not all eligible Android owners will receive Lollipop first thing November 3. Given the number of players involved in pushing out an Android OS update, the rollout will instead play out overtime. Typically, Google sends the latest Android update to its own Nexus devices. Then the other mobile device makers start to prep the updates for their own devices. And that may take some time.
The first set of devices to run this new version of Android Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player will be available in early November. In the same timeframe, they'll also roll out the Android 5.0 update worldwide to Nexus 4, 5, 7 (2012 & 2013), and 10 devices, as well as to Google Play edition devices.
After the Nexus and Google Play devices get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, the release date for other devices will depend on individual OEMs.
