Google talks about Android 5.1 Lollipop update changes

 

Android LollipopAs Nokia plans to bring Nokia N1 to more markets, we as promised, will cover more of Android on NPU. Here is the first one and Google has just revealed a new Android Lollipop update, Android 5.1. The update brings some important changes and improvements to the Android Lollipop experience.

Android 5.1 Lollipop changelog:

Support for multiple SIM cards:

Whether you want to share your phone with a family member or better manage your mobile costs, Android Lollipop 5.1 now lets you use more than one SIM card on a device with multiple SIM slots.

Device Protection:

With Device Protection, your lost or stolen device will remain locked until you sign in with your Google account – even if someone resets your device to factory settings. This feature will be available on most Android phones and tablets shipped with Android 5.1 in addition to Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.

High definition (HD) voice on compatible phones:

High Definition voice calling is now on your mobile phone. Get crystal clear calling with HD Voice between compatible Android 5.1 devices like the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile or Verizon.

 Quick settings enhancements:

Android 5.1 Lollipop also provides enhancements such as the ability to join Wi-Fi networks and control of your paired Bluetooth devices directly from Quick Settings.

Stability and performance improvements.

Nokia has been known for supporting its devices with latest software updates and the latest OTA update for Nokia N1 brought Android 5.0.2 that only a handful of lucky Android device owners had received yet. So, we can look forward to Android 5.1 making its way soon to Nokia N1.

    Thanks for the update! To clarify, there is already dual SIM support in Android, but it was a component added in manually by OEMs (e.g. in Nokia X). This is a universal implementation in AOSP, which is better for consumers (less time taken for porting to devices)

    By the way, at the Apple event yesterday, Phil Schiller claimed the new MacBook was the first device with USB-C. Guess he hadn’t used the Nokia N1 😉
