After serveral rumors & previews online, the new Android 5.0 will be officially be unveiled in three new devices: Motorola’s Nexus 6, HTC’s Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player for Google’s new Android TV platform.
The update will likewise be available on the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and all Google Play Edition handhelds in the following weeks.
As previewed by Google previously, the most evident change in Lollipop is the inclusion of the Material Design that tags a number of new features, including a hyped visual experience, User Interface, animation and a more streamlined multitasking etiquette. In addition, Google’s plan for the new platform is to bring together all of Android: from Smartphones to tablets to the new TV, everything will offer a unified experience.
Also in line with the Lollipop is some 5,000 new Application Programming Interface, or APIs for developers to tweak and further develop. Android 5.0 will also give users a new notification control, battery saver, multiple user accounts plus guest mode, and much more. Security wise, it will also boost the Smartphone’s ability to be restored in its factory default just in case your unit got stolen.
It’s a tradition for Google to release a new dessert, and they’ve been doing it with flair. Although KitKat was short-lived, their long line of names and new user experience has been steady, alongside those sweet visual offerings.
