Android L is expected to be the next feather in the crown of Google and Android. At such a crucial junction, when the users are waiting to get a first look on the operating system, various issues are hurting Google and Android. It was in the month of October when Google announced the arrival of Android L in the coming weeks. Weeks have passed since then with an impending arrival of Android L. This has in turn created a hostile environment for Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
According to the reports, Android L was to be released by this time. But the developers have tracked down a bug in the operating system, which will have drained the battery of the device very fast. In addition, the developers have probably failed to remove the Wi-Fi bug from the final build of the Operating system. Google has officially acknowledged the issue and have stated that the developers are looking into the matter. The developers claim that the battery is being drained for unknown reasons as soon as the location services are initiated. You can avoid the unknown drainage of the batteries provided you keep your LTE, Location services, etc. turned off. The moment these services are back, the battery gets drained again.
The developers at Google are looking into the matter and this is why the rollout of Android L has been postponed slightly. The bug is primarily affecting Nexus 5 as Google has claimed. No reports have been stated with similar disturbances with Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
On the other hand, the majority of the smartphone makers has promised upgrades to Android L for their high-end smartphones. Smartphone makers like Samsung, Sony, Motorola, etc. have announced that the Android L upgrade will be rolled out soon. The most common devices which will be expected to get an Android L upgrade soon are Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Motorola Droid Turbo, Sony Xperia Z3, LG G3, etc.. As the list grows, it will be interesting to see how Google ends up as this is the next big upgrade since the arrival of Android 4.0.
While Google is struggling to fix the bugs and manage the expectations of the customers, the rumors involving Android L are springing up as well. Among the recent leaks, screenshots of an LG G3 with Android L has given us an initial sneak into the User Interface. The leaked images comes from a polish website who claim to have used the LG G3 with Android L. The good thing is that Google’s intention of matching up with the hype related to iOS 8 is probably being matched up!
