Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 to get Android Lollipop on November 3?

Google’s Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets will be getting the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS on November 3, latest reports have suggested.

Both Nexus 7 variants, namely the 2012 and 2013 Wi-Fi editions, will be getting the update at the same time.

Unfortunately it seems the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 won’t be so lucky, with both Google-stamped smartphones set to get the updated OS at a later date. The Nexus 7 LTE model is also tipped for a postponed upgrade.

The leak comes courtesy of Android Police, with the blog citing ‘a reliable source’ for the new info.

“We’re confident in our sources and the quality of the information provided on this,” boasts the site.

The November 3 update gels with the on-sale date for Google’s newly announced Nexus 9, the search engine giant’s latest flagship slate.

Google also recently announced the Nexus 6, although we don’t have a specific November date for the smartphone just yet.

Android Lollipop brings with it a raft of modifications, most notably a visual upgrade following Google’s flat and fluid ‘material design’ aesthetic.

It’s also set to support 64-bit chip architecture, increase battery life significantly, and improve cross-device communication.
