It started life as Android L preview in June, but it has since matured into a full-blown release, ready to hit millions of Android devices over the next weeks and months. Android 5.0 Lollipop is here!
Just hours before the expected launch of Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android Lollipop, Google updated its fun little Androidify app with a new UI, new dance moves, and… yes, a hint at upcoming devices.
Caschys Blog, a source with several solid leaks to its name, published screenshots purportedly showing the German prices of Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, as well as their storage configurations.
Google Chrome Beta for Android v39 app update has begun rolling out. In addition to bug fixes, there is a new Reader Mode, Android L Preview integration and a new animation or two.
Google researchers have highlighted a new bug, called Poodle, which is capable of exploiting SSL 3.0 fallback.
According to former pro leaker @evleaks, this device is the Nexus 6. We have no way of knowing it for sure, but judging from the image, as well as Blass’ track record, this may truly be our first look at Nexus 6 press render.
If you needed another clue that the launch of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 is nigh, three new animated commercials apparently featuring the devices went live a few hours ago.
If you aren’t convinced that Android L is almost here, with a likely unveil this week, the fact that Google’s statue maker is currently preparing the lawn for “future photo ops” might be enough to win you over.
Another busy week in the world of Android: our Nexus fever reached new highs thanks to new reports about Google’s upcoming devices, Samsung shared some bad news, Motorola’s Droid Turbo stopped being a secret, HTC launched its selfie-focused Desire Eye and RE Camera, Lenovo surprised us with its quirky new Yoga tablets, and Google released big updates to several of its Android apps.
Google promised that its apps would receive Material-inspired updates to go with Android L, and Play Store is the latest to get a Material facelift.
