Although Android L was first released as a developer preview back in the summer during Google I/O, no official release date for Google’s next iteration of their mobile operating system has been announced. Nevertheless, as Google continues to push out application updates that incorporate their new Material Design guidelines that are a big part of Android L, we get a sense that the time is quickly approaching. That could be within the next couple months as a new report suggests Samsung is gearing up to have Android L ready to roll out to their flagship devices by late November or early December. The sources indicate Samsung will be ready with Android L for both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 during that time frame.
For many consumers, the wait may be a bit longer though as the update goes through carrier certifications. Android fans are probably hopeful that Google, the smartphone manufacturers and the carriers are getting better at putting the operating system together in such a way that a major update can be rolled out much more quickly than in the past.
