Details of Android 5.1 update reportedly revealed, along with release date

It's been over two months since Google formally announced Android 5.0, but six weeks after its launch, just 0.1% of devices had actually received the Lollipop update. Nonetheless, some are already looking forward to the next Android update, and one report claims to have details on what that update will bring.

AndroidPit came across information via one of its sources, which it says it has been able to verify through a second separate source. Its report claims that Android 5.1 is scheduled to launch "by the end of February 2015".

The same report also details a changelog of improvements and enhancements that it claims Android 5.1 will bring:

  • Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
  • General improvements in system stability
  • Improved RAM management
  • Fixes for sudden app closures
  • Improved battery management
  • Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
  • Issues with wireless connections fixed
  • Problems with Okay Google function solved
  • Notifications problems solved
  • Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
  • Other improvements and changes
  • Changes in the Material Design color palette

Although AndroidPit claims it has been able to confirm these details with two of its sources, neither of those sources has been identified - so until another news publication is able to verify the information in its report independently, we'll be taking it all with several pinches of salt.
