It’s just over a month ago that the OnePlus finally released the OxygenOS for the One handset after numerous delays. While the OxygenOS firmware is meant for international One handsets, OnePlus has just announced it will release a new ROM called HydrogenOS for the One handset in China.
Despite recent confirmation that Galaxy Note 2 wouldn’t be receiving Lollipop, Samsung Danmark took to Twitter that some variants of the device would be getting it.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s out of Denmark (CSC code: NEE) will get the update. In another tweet, Samsung Danmark said both the Galaxy Note 2 (GT-N7100) and the Galaxy Note 2 4G (G5-N7105) will get Lollipop. However, the updates will occur at different times, and there is currently no info as to which one will come first.
It’s a known fact that old technology–even if its only three years–often doesn’t get updated to the latest and greatest, such as Android 5.0 Lollipop. We’ve seen this time and time again with Samsung and LG devices. Thankfully, Galaxy S4 owners aren’t apart of that crowd, and users touting the device on Sprint should be getting the update sometime today.
The Moto X (1st Gen) began receiving its Android 5.1 update in Brazil a couple of weeks ago, and everyone asked when the second generation Moto X (2014) would get its turn. Well, it seems that today is the lucky day if you live in Brazil, thanks to Motorola rolling out the update in a soak test.
Nexus 9 owners have had a rough time of it, besides being seemingly ignored when it came to the Android 5.1 update, they were also trolled when Google pushed out a measly 23MB update the other day. Now it seems, at long last, that Nexus 9 owners can bask in the goodness that is Android 5.1 Lollipop. Read more
Motorola is rolling out a new maintenance update to fix an emergency dialing bug for the first and second-gen Moto X, Nexus 6, Droid Turbo, Moto Maxx/Turbo, Droid Ultra, and Moto X Pro.
The bug this update fixes only happens in rare situations, such as having an encrypted phone with “PIN to start” enabled. When you power on the phone and use the emergency dialer shortcut, you will be able to hear the dispatcher, but the dispatcher cannot hear you, Motorola says.
Pay attention, Nexus 9 owners! The tablet is currently seeing a software update appear that brings with it…. Android 5.0.2. Oh, you probably thought that Google was finally delivering Android 5.1. Nope, not today.
Google says that performance is improved and bugs have been squashed with this update.
A wise man once crooned, “I’m King of the Mountain” (and he was), and Samsung is like unto said wise man in this regard – the unquestioned lord of its domain. Though the Galaxy S5 is largely seen as a disappointment, the S6 and S6 have been met with some of the best reviews in Samsung’s history. It’s too early to report actual sales, but there’s buzz about these devices.
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge also happen to boast one of the best cameras in all of mobiledom, with a great (if saturation-happy) sensor, and a camera app robust with features, yet still simple enough for lay users to harness.
Sony has just announced that it is pushing out an update to its Xperia Z2 and Z3 ranges of smartphones and tablets, bringing a variety of bugfixes and tweaks with it whilst keeping the devices on Android 5.0. We have the changelog after the break. Read more
It was only a couple of weeks ago that Samsung began rolling out the Android 5.0 update to the WiFi variant of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, and now we have news that the LTE version is also receiving some Lollipop goodness, in Hong Kong of all places. Read more
