Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 were not the only launches yesterday, the official name and Android L real name was unveiled in a seemingly low fashioned blog post. From now on Android L Release has been named Android 5.0 Lollipop and yeah its version number is 5.0.
Google has earlier uploaded a video mocking several speculated names like Licorice, Lady Finger, etc. Google Android Lollipop will be Android 5.0 and the changes are more than material design.
Along with flat, layered, shadows, animated Material design Android Lollipop will also feature ART runtime as default. ART runtime is supposedly 4 times faster than Dalvik runtime which was the default runtime before. Android Lollipop also brings in support for 64bit processors.
Google Android Lollipop will have various gestures so as to do basic task in a second like launching flashlight with a gesture. There’s also heads up notification so as to prevent any disturbance during gaming and movies.
There supposedly a new mode which will allow you in condition of critical battery to turn off most of battery consuming features, so your phone can last you through the day without getting switched off. Android Lollipop is the most comprehensive update Android has ever had with so many refinements and many new features it’s definitely a compelling change.
