Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has revealed the Android Lollipop update release details for select Honor series devices in India.
The company took to Twitter (@HiHonorIndia) to announce that Android will be released to four Honor devices later this year, starting with Honor 4C on 21 September, and then to Honor 6 (on 25 September), Honor 6 Plus (on 29 September) and Honor 4X (on 20 October).
The aforementioned Huawei Honor series owner will be happy to finally migrate from the two-year-old KitKat OS, but have to settle for Lollipop, which will soon get outdated. We are just a few weeks away from the official 6.0 Marshmallow release.
There is no word on whether the Android Lollipop update will be v5.0 or the latest v5.1.1. And we are also not sure the update will include security software patch to plug the dreaded security loophole, Stagefright bug.
Android 5.0 will bring the new design language, Material design, with interactive user interface, lots of animation graphics, replacement of Dalvik with ART as its default runtime will bring improvement in performance-and-battery-life enhancement, new TouchWiz UI features, refurbished interface, lock-screen notification options and many more features.
Other key enhancements include the option to transfer apps from the device's flash storage to SD card memory and multi-user profiles (Work, private & guest).
Android v5.1.1 will bring enhanced stability and an improved ART (Android Run Time), making apps open faster than before. Issues with "Okay Google" have also reportedly been fixed.
The new update will bring Wi-Fi toggle option to Quick Settings alongside Bluetooth, apart from a fix for the memory leak issue that was reported in Android 5.0 Lollipop causing apps to crash abruptly without warning. It also rectifies random app crashes of dialler and messaging apps as well.
