Previous reports indicated that Android Lollipop update for Android One users would hit in the beginning of January this year. However, the speculation turned out to be false.
Google India today tweeted that Android One users are finally set to get Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the "next few weeks". While it is good news for Android One users in India, but questions will be raised over the delay in the arrival of Android Lollipop update for Android One users.
Google isn't talking about why the Android 5.0 Lollipop software update for Android One owners still isn't available, but whatever the reason, the situation spotlights Google's inability to stick to its previous commitment.

Last year, Google revealed that the Android 5.0 Lollipop mobile operating system would make its way to Android One platform "in the coming weeks," but with three months already lapsed, users are already fumed by Google's casual attitude towards its own pet project - Android One. Notably, Motorola and Xolo have released the updates for their respective devices but the Android One smartphones users are still craving.
According to several media reports, the first batch of Android One smartphones have failed to live up to consumers' anticipation. One such report had earlier claimed that retailers were not happy to stock the Android One smartphones.
Google, however, could hope to get better response once players like HTC and Asus launch their Android One smartphones in the first half of 2015.
