Android 5.0 Lollipop Coming on 3 November: Which Nexus Devices Will Receive Update First?Google

Contrary to Google's announcement that all Nexus devices would be receiving its latest Android iteration or Android 5.0 Lollipop simultaneously, fresh reports suggest that the Wi-Fi versions of Nexus tablets will be receiving the new update first followed by others.

It is ascertained that the first over-the-air updates to Android 5.0 Lollipop will be available on Wi-Fi versions of Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets including the Nexus 7 (2012), Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi) and Nexus 10 Wi-Fi, according to Android Police, citing an unidentified source.

In other words, the Nexus devices running on cellular data will have to wait a bit longer to receive the OTA update, which means the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 LTE (2013) will be getting the Android L update a bit later.

Nevertheless, the unidentified source has confirmed to Android Police that the Wi-Fi variants of Nexus tablets will receive the Android L update on 3 November.

Here is what the source has stated to Android Police:

Starting later this week, we will make the SDK and system images for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 of Android 5.0 Lollipop available on developer.android.com. On November 3, we will begin rolling our Android 5.0 Lollipop to Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi) and Nexus 10 via an OTA, and it will continue to roll out to Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (LTE) later that month.

Though some sceptics may think otherwise, Android Police sounds confident about the reliability and quality of information provided by its source.
