Recent news for the LG Nexus 5 suggests that the smartphone will run on Android 5.2 and will be skipping 5.1
OS update for your smartphone can sometimes be exciting. It will fix a few bugs that you have encountered and reported like memory leakage for example. Although, at rare occasions, it can also give you a headache or it can give more confusion than solution, whether they are legitimate update or not, like this news for the LG Nexus 5 Android.
LG Nexus 5 caught running Android 5.2? What happened to Android 5.1?
On February 16, 2015, Geekbench made a post that the LG Nexus 5 OS is being developed for the Android 5.1, great news right? LG is one step ahead against other competitors when it comes to updating their OS. However, a day after that initial post, the confusion starts to kick in.
On February 17, 2015 at 10:57 PM, they have made another post that sure is mind-boggling. Geekbench indicated there that instead of the 5.1, the flagship is?now being developed with?Android 5.2!
When a person makes a mistake on their initial post, the first thing he or she will do is make another one with a more accurate fact to back up his/her claim?or that person can just replace his first post with a more concrete facts by deleting it. Sadly, that wasn?t the case for the LG Nexus 5 and the post on Geekbench.
Possible reason for this mix-up
According to techradar, this could mean that Google will just skip the 5.1 update and go straight to the Android 5.2. Pretty much like what Microsoft did to their Windows OS, from Windows 8 to Windows 10. The only difference is that, there really is an Android 5.1 but they still haven?t released it yet while Windows 9 on the other hand, it is like a bedtime story we tell to our kids at night.
Does this give credence to the rumor that Android 5.1 may be faulty and that the next version is actually more stable? How about the phones who haven’t even received Lollipop yet?
