Taiwanese technology major, Asus has reportedly revealed the timeline of Android Lollipop OS update release to flagship Zenfone series smartphones and other devices.
The company (via official blog) has confirmed that the Google's latest mobile OS update roll out process will begin in April 2015, starting with Zenfone series 4, 5, 6, Padfone S (PF500KL) and later in June for Padfone Infinity (A89).
With the announcement, Asus joins the growing club of Google OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) affiliates like Motorola, Sony, HTC and LG to officially confirm the new Android OS firmware release details to their devices.
Though Samsung has not officially revealed any details regarding the OS update to its flagship devices, the company has hinted that Galaxy Note 4 might get Lollipop very soon.
Word on the street is that the South Korean company is likely to release new candy flavoured Google OS to Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 before the end of December.
For the uninitiated, Google's new Android v5.0 Lollipop OS comes with a completely re-furbished new design language- material design, bringing inter-active user-interface, newer short-cuts, notification features on lock-screen, replacement of Dalvik with ART as its default runtime and many more tweaks for performance enhancements.
