While device manufacturers are busy on updating and adopting their devices to Lollipop, rumors are now suggesting that Google will be shipping Android 5.1 Lollipop by early next year. Google had just released Android 5.0.1 to fix minor bugs found in Nexus devices and here we have another bulk of updates to be expected next year. Though the said information is yet to be confirmed but it seems some legitimate people are now confirming some of these new information that we have are more likely to be valid.
As our sources suggests, Android 5.1 will deliver major bug fixes and performance improvements together with minor yet significant improvements to the Material design color palette being implemented and better memory management. Other significant improvements which is said to materialize with Android 5.1 Lollipop are the following:
Silent Mode comes back after being missing with Android 5.0
Improved RAM management
Fixed on sudden application termination
Better battery management
Fixed excessive consumption of network devices with Wi-Fi
Fixed for Wireless connection issue
Fixed for “Okay Google” function
Fixed Notification problems
Fixed Audio issues on some devices
Changes in Material Design color palette
Though this said fixes and improvements are currently subject for confirmation from Google itself but taking things into consideration, we might just have all this features available on the next update of Android 5 Lollipop as these known issues are currently being fix by Google and should be ready soon. Since the alleged February 2015 availability of the update is still unconfirmed, as time progresses we should be getting more information from the Android Team as they work around the clock to prepare and release these important bug fixes and improvements to the public.
