The next big update to the latest Android OS, Android 5.1 is all set for release in this February, which will be followed by its release for all major devices, Android Pit reported.

As is the way, the update will first reach the Nexus devices and hopefully solve the existing issues that the Android version 5.0.1 has created like the “memory leak issue”.

The changelog that the Android 5.1 Lollipop brings over Android 5.0 Lollipop is as follows:

– Addition of Silent mode

– General improvements in the stability of the system

– Improved RAM management

– Fixing sudden app closures

– Improved battery management

– Fix of excessive consumption of network devices when WI-Fi is used

– Fix of issues with wireless connections

– Changes in material design color palette

These seem to be pretty much satisfactory when compared with the previous version. Android 5.0.2 was released on to the Nexus 7 (2012) and we never know if it gets rolled out to other devices too. So its hoped that Android 5.1 Lollipop will hopefully be rolled out to all the expected devices.

As of now, most of the major devices which are running on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat will be able to upgrade to Lollipop OS. But smartphone users except for the Nexus users have to wait a little longer as the release of this OS from their OEMs might take time to customize it based on the hardware.
