Mysterious Android 5.2 Lollipop update appears – but we have no idea what’s in store

According to Google’s own Android version distribution data, Android 5.0 Lollipop is only on 1.6% of Android devices that are currently in use. The actual figure is undoubtedly much smaller, as it doesn’t take into account the millions upon millions of off-brand Android devices that don’t ship with Google’s apps and services installed.

Video: This is what Lollipop looks like on the world’s sleekest Android phone

It might not be the newest Android phone in the world, and it might not be the most powerful. It also isn’t the fastest phone on the planet, and it doesn’t have the highest-resolution display either.

While we all wait to see what HTC has in store for us in 2015, owners of the company’s 2014 flagship phone still have plenty to look forward to thanks to Google’s major Android 5.0 Lollipop update, which will soon be available for the One (M8). Thanks to a new leak, however, we can see what Lollipop looks like on the M8 right now. More →
