This week there seemed to be a lot of news surrounding Android Lollipop, which of course is always big news for users. People love those updates to the software. While not all android devices are treated the same in regards to updates, those that are part of the Nexus lineup tend to get things more quickly, as we saw two more Nexus devices this week get a little closer to Android 5.1 Lollipop. While the Nexus Player recently had factory images of 5.1 Lollipop posted, the AT&T Nexus 6 was reported to be receiving the update over-the-air. Motorola began testing the waters of Android 5.1 as well with the 2014 Moto X Pure Edition through a soak test this weekend, so Nexus devices weren’t the only ones to get a taste of 5.1.
In addition to Motorola beginning the Android 5.1 soak test for the 2014 Moto X Pure Edition, they’re also reportedly skipping Android 5.0 for the DROID Turbo and moving straight to Android 5.1. Updates may have been some of the biggest news this week, but it wasn’t the only big news. HTC’s Cher Wang will be taking over as the new CEO, and another luxury watch brand, Tag Heuer, will reportedly be entering into the smartwatch market with their own offering. In the realm of rumors, there was one big rumor this week that was more attention grabbing than any other, that the LG G4 will sport a 5.6-inch display.
