Samsung has all the time been fairly good with Android updates (excluding the worldwide model of the Galaxy S3, that's), so it comes as no shock that the corporate plans to have Android S (model H.zero) up and operating on its Galaxy Note A and Galaxy S5 handsets simply in time for Christmas.
“Both units ought to get the Android S replace by the top of November/early December – it’s not clear when Google will make the brand new model out there for Nexus units,” reviews Sam Mobile, “however based mostly on our information Samsung must be fairly fast at adapting it for its personal units.”
Android S –– in case you missed it –– is probably Google’s largest OS replace up to now, bringing with it a myriad of latest options (help for sixty four-bit chipsets, ART runtime for apps, lockscreen notifications) in addition to some very tasty design refinements, as per Google’s new Material Design ethos.
The Big M’s Nexus line of handsets and tablets will little question be first in line for Android L, with the upcoming Nexus S –– or Nexus X –– stated to be the primary system out the blocks to hold it. The Nexus X is believed to be launching inside Q4 and is claimed to have taken fairly a little bit of inspiration from the quickly-to-be-launched and completely superior Moto X 2014.
Beyond Samsung and Google, although, it’s unclear what plans different OEMs have in place for his or her units. We’ve compiled an inventory of the whole lot that's at present recognized about HTC, Sony, LG, Motorola and OnePlus’ Android L replace plans, however nothing concrete is but recognized about rollout schedules. Interestingly, HTC says it’ll be updating its One handsets as quickly as Google makes the code out there (guess there actually is a primary time for every little thing!)…
