Android M: here are the expected and most probable new features


With Google I/O 2015 kicking off in a few days, we are probably getting closer and closer to the potential unveiling of the next flavor of Android, the name of which will certainly begin with an "M". Yes, Lollipop is here and it is, all things considered, one of the best renditions of the OS, but Google certainly can't afford resting on its laurels.

At this point, it seems that the next Android, which is internally known as "Macadamia Nut Cookie", will be an update centered around the overall polishment of the OS; an incremental, yet a bit needed evolutionary improvement of the platform. Let's face it, Lollipop rocked the Android world, but not exclusively in a good way: apart from a full bushel of issues and bugs that marred the initial launch of Android 5.0.

Here are the most likely new features that it will come with. Of course, there might be a few surprises, and there better be. Feel free to check out our full-fledged rumor round-up regarding the next flavor of Android as well!

Al the while you leave 90% of Android cell phone behind. lollipop is only on 10% of devices and you are already seeking 6.0. This is why you need a 800 dollar handset every year. because noone will want Lollipop once M or macadamia is on the table and Samsung will be first in line to take ORDINARY peoples money with a new handset.

So if you dont like it why bash it? I dont like Xiaomi among others OEMs but I dont bash it on every post. Matter of fact I would like to see allcompanies having positive sales and happy customers.

Because he's a liar, and it causes him such pain to see Samsung not only continue to sell millions of devices, but also to have their flagship phones rated higher than any others by most tech review sites. Absolutely makes him cry.

And the reason nobody cares is those older versions are still more advanced than the competition, and thanks to Play Services updates receive much of the added functionality anyway.

I think that is part of the new strategy. Instead of having multiple revision every six months, just have one annually; it gives the OEMs, time to get their act together.

Sony has multiwindow?. I think they should not announce the android M. To early. They should fix the bugs in the lollipop before releasing a new version of android.

I agree but Google doesnt care they fixed their phones, who cares about other OEMs
