Apple is done pushing out its brand new iOS 8 operating system. And now it's Google's turn to show similar kind of love for its Android platform. Hence, we aren't far from the day Google finally releases the brand new Android L for all its users.
While we wait for the new Android platform to make its mark, it seems like Samsung devices might be treated to the new platform upgrade sooner than you think. Apparently, both the Galaxy S5 and the new Galaxy Note 4 handsets are expected to receive the new upgrade somtime this November or December.
Folks over at Sammobile recently got a few details regarding the same from insiders related to the company. And according to them, both devices should get the Android L update by the end of November/early December.
While the Galaxy S5 smartphone has been out since April, the Galaxy Note 4, which was launched back at IFA 2014, is set to hit retail shelves starting this October. But further rumors are claiming that Samsung may not be the only company that will receive the update.
Currently, it is expected that Google will launch the massively rumored Nexus 9 pre-loaded with the new OS next month. On October 8 to be more precise at HTC's event. But no one knows for sure for the time being.
But as it happens with software updates, it's never a guarantee that these time frames will work out, so it's better to take the news with a pinch of salt.
However, as Sammobile rightly puts it, "with competing devices like the low-end Moto G getting quick updates these days, it's possible Samsung is working at pushing updates faster than it has in the past, a scenario we can always get behind."
More details on the official pushout of the upgraded platform are set to arrive in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
