Apple is getting a lot of things done lately, as just this week it is going to launch the Apple Pay mobile payments service, where people can pay with just their smartphones. Google isn’t going to fall behind, naturally, so yesterday it launched the newest version of Android, the Android 5.0 Lollipop. Let’s take a look at the list of smartphones that will upgrade to the latest Android!
Android 5.0 Lollipop and Compatible Phones
Android 5.0 Lollipop is an amazing update to Android. One of the most impressive features will prolong battery life on your phone by 90 minutes! Let’s take a look at the companies and their smartphones that will update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Naturally, Google’s new HTC Nexus 9 tablet and the Motorola Nexus 6 are coming with the OS preinstalled. Google said that the Nexus 3, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will be updated in the following weeks.
HTC will begin rolling out the new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS to their HTC One M7 and HTC One M8 within 90 days of getting the final version of the software from Google. The rest of the One family will get the update after the flaghsips do.
Motorola will be putting the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system on a bunch of devices: the 1st and 2nd generation Moto X and Moto G, Droid Mini, Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra, Moto E and the Moto G with LTE.
Sony hasn’t released any information about the Android update. We’re guessing that the company’s current line of smartphones will all be updated to the new Android 5.0 Lollipop, such as the Xperia Z3 compact, the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 V.
LG and Samsung
As is the case with Sony, LG and Samsung haven’t released anything about the software update. We expect to see Android 5.0 Lollipop on the LG G3 and G2 Pro, the G2 and the G Pro. Samsung will most likely update the Galaxy S4 and the Note 3. When this will happen, we have no idea, but we’re guessing it’s not going to be this year, but the beginning of next year.
