Google on Thursday quietly released Android 5.1 Lollipop update - via its official Android One page. There's no official announcement as yet, it is unclear as to what kind of changes this update brings.
The Android One smartphones are coming to Indonesia later this month. While the mention of an Android 5.1 Lollipop could be a typo, but it shows several times on the Android One page, making it clear that Android 5.1 Lollipop update is real not an illusion.
For now, the update is expected to hit the Android One smartphones. Although, it's being speculated that this is a bug fix release to stabilize battery issues.
Back in December 2014, a leaked changelog indicated that the update would include the following:
• Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
• General improvements in system stability
• Improved RAM management
• Fixes for sudden app closures
• Improved battery management
• Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
• Issues with wireless connections fixed
• Problems with Okay Google function solved
• Notifications problems solved
• Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
• Other improvements and changes
• Changes in the Material Design colour palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)
In another news, Android One smartphones in India are set to get Android 5.0 Lollipop update shortly. The update will be made available for all three Android One handsets - Micromax Canvas A1, Karbonn Sparkle V, and Spice Dream Uno.
