Android 5.1 spotted in the wild

Android 5.1 update introduced on Android One handsets in Indonesia
Android 5.1
Android One handsets for the Indonesian market come loaded with Android 5.1, which is the next update after 5.0.2 and will probably roll out to Nexus devices soon.

Not long after launching Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google unveiled the first update to its notorious mobile operating system. The first Lollipop update carries version number 5.0.1, and was followed by version 5.0.2. Strange enough, it looks like the next update is not 5.0.3 as the tech giant headquartered in Mountain View, California decided to jump straight to 5.1.

The official English language Android One web page mentions "the latest version of Android, Lollipop 5.1" but does not reveal the changes from version 5.0.2 to 5.1. The highlights specified on this page include better performance, improved autonomy, as well as the ability to turn off data and check data usage "with just 2 quick swipes." 

Since Android 5.1 is expected to ship with a few Android One handsets only in Indonesia starting today, it remains to see when will it reach the rest of the world. Google surely has to say something about this software update in a day or two. Be sure we will get back to Android 5.1 Lollipop as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
