Android Lollipop 5.0 coming to cheap smartphones

Android-Lollipop

Will Android Lollipop come to my device ?

Android Lollipop 5.0 is still rolling relatively slow. There are just several phones upgraded to the newest Google’s operating system. However we still don’t see any smartphones coming with Android 5.0 out of the box. Big names like Samsung, LG, HTC and Sony haven’t announced any new Lollipop phone so far. HTC even announced earlier that they will manage to upgraded HTC One M8 within 90 days after Lollipop’s release, however it looks like they’ll miss the deadline. At the same time we saw some Chinese smartphones (and not only Chinese) promising Android Lollipop 5.0 update. That’s what we know so far:

Elephone P6000
