Lollipop Update Schedule
Android 5.0 Lollipop starts seeding to the devices from most of the brands including HTC, Nexus, LG, Motorola, Samsung and more but still few vendors are working on it to roll out the update to their devices. Most of our readers were asking when I will get the Lollipop update officially on my phone, then I thought to write a post that will help them to get a snippet of the update roll out. In the list below, few of the devices have already got the update while few are in the forthcoming list.
To help narrow down your search we have put together a master list of all the devices which will be receiving Android Lollipop at some point in the future. We’ll be updating the list regularly, so if you find a source that confirms another handset will be lucky enough to receive Lollipop, please do let us know.
Without further delay, see the list of Lollipop Update Schedule for different devices:
