The next major version of Android, which may either numerically defined as either 4.5.something or 5.something is due mid-late this year. Rumour has it it will likely be called lollipop as the successor to KitKat, but this hasn't been confirmed by Google.

Any rumours etc please post under this thread, let's see if they turn out to be true! :lol

Not sure exactly what all this means, but:

"Google's Android 4.5 "Lollipop" is set to bring a change by unifying Chrome, Android and search altogether.

According to leaked details by the Android Police, Google will reportedly significantly revamp the user interface.

The company is currently experimenting with Project Hera, which, "essentially represents Google's effort to unify the experience users have in Android, Chrome, and Search all on your Android-powered device," according to Android Police.

The interface is set to be a new HTML5-style interface, meaning actions could be carried out without fully opening the app.

Project Hera would allow easier integration between Chrome and search on mobile devices running Android, and allow HTML5 apps to work natively on Android.

Hera is believed to be built on Google's Chromium platform, but that is yet to be confirmed."

Did read somewhere that 4.5 or 5 will be released around summer but would they roll out with the new Samsung galaxy s5 as it is a major new release?

I think the S5 is released tomorrow, but could be wrong? I think they've missed the boat for that one.

I would want to assume they would want to roll it out to their own devices first, then release it to Samsung, Sony et al to add their own UI too?

True but you never know as android updates are known be slow to roll out as networks scrutinise the updates first & add there own bloat ware before sending it out to there customers

Yes I have read from Digital Spy the S5 release date is April 11th (tomorrow as you say)

As for missing the boat...you could be right. HTC released the Mate immediately after the major promotion and sources

have inferred this was a brilliant PR move :D

Next thing around the corner will be WWDC where apple will have its annual keynote speech & we will find out what they intend for this year but likely nothing about iPhones as they tend to leave that until two weeks before it's release

With 4.4.3 gone past it's suspected release date with no update from Google as to an official launch, people are now starting to wonder whether or not Google will put it on the back burner and release 4.5 in June instead.

Anyone heard anything :?:

Grammar. The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.
S3 i9305, Rooted, CM 12.1, Lycamobile.
Xperia Z5 Dual Sim, EE & O2.
Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet LTE, Three.

Imitation. The sincerest form of flattery
