More than three months after it released Lollipop, Google has started rolling out the update for its budget oriented Android One smartphones in India. As confirmed by Google’s +Caesar Sengupta, the update is currently being rolled out to a small number of Android One users in India.
Yesterday, it was revealed that Google is shipping Android One handsets in Philippines with a newer version of Lollipop — Android 5.1 — that is yet to make its way to Nexus devices.
Google today announced that it is expanding its Android One program to Philippines.
Google may have only just made Android 5.0.2 available for its Nexus devices, but it seems the company is already close to launching Android 5.1. The update is now shipping on select Android One handsets in Indonesia, and expected soon for Nexus smartphones and tablets.
Lollipop is probably the biggest update that Android has ever received since its inception. The side effect of such a major update is that the release is quite buggy with unexpected regression in certain areas as well. Now, according to sources of Android PIT, Google is actually planning on rolling out Android 5.1 in February next year to address the issues with Android 5.0.
