Samsung launches Galaxy J3 Pro in India... with Android 5.1 Lollipop

Today Samsung announced that it has released the Galaxy J3 Pro in India. The phone is a low-to-midrange device with no exciting specifications to speak of, save one. It is launching with Android 5.1 Lollipop. This is noteworthy almost to the point of humor, as Lollipop is now two major updates behind and a year old.

The Sony Xperia M5 Gets Its Over-The-Air Update To Android 5.1, PC Companion Update Also Available

Sony has been rolling out Android 5.1 updates intermittently ever since last July... up to and past the point where Android 6.0's AOSP code has been available to manufacturers. The last few devices that received bumps to 5.1 were the Xperia C4 and C5 Ultra earlier this month, and today the Xperia M5 gets the same treatment. Users can wait for the over-the-air update alert in the usual manner, or use Sony's PC Companion computer program to download and install the update manually.

This "super mid-range" M5 was launched back in August, running Android 5.0 at launch, much to the consternation of Android fans who would have preferred the latest software.

Sony's Xperia C4 And Xperia C5 Ultra Receive Their Android 5.1 Over-The-Air Updates

We're well past the point where any Android enthusiast would be expecting (or perhaps more accurately hoping) that his or her phone will be getting an update full of Marshmallowy goodness, perhaps delivered by some confectionary fairy. Alas, for owners of the Xperia C4 and Xperia C5 Ultra, it's a bag full of Lollipops instead. Both phones are now being updated by Sony to Android 5.1, a version of the OS which we'll remind you is now almost a year old.

Both phones began receiving their respective software late last night, at least according to the updated pages on Sony's support site.

Verizon's Galaxy Note 4 Finally, Finally, Finally Gets Android 5.1.1 Update

Verizon really isn't on the ball with its Note 4 updates. When Google released the Android 5.1 source code in March of 2015, the Note 4 was only half a year old and it was still one of the most expensive flagships being sold by the operator. Now sure, Samsung took its sweet time to have Android 5.1 ready for everyone, but by the beginning of August, Sprint had already released it. AT&T followed in October, and T-Mobile at the end of November.

Verizon? Well, as the largest carrier in the US, customers would have assumed that their operator would be burning the midnight oil trying to get the update out to them as soon as possible.

Yu Announces Cyanogen OS 12.1 (Android 5.1) Over-The-Air Update For The Yuphoria

Yu's Cyanogen OS-running Yuphoria phone, sold primarily to the Indian market, has had CyanogenMod 12.1 (Android 5.1) available for almost half a year now. The catch is that it's been available as a CyanogenMod nightly build, requiring end users to flash a custom recovery, then a custom ROM in order to access it. Yesterday, the Cyanogen company and Yu itself announced the over-the-air rollout of the finished, consumer-ready update for the stock software build.

The YOG4PAS47N build is Android 5.1.1/Cyanogen OS 12.1 (the official commercial updates from the incorporated company lose the -Mod suffix). To upgrade, users need to be running the latest version of the retail software, YNG1TBS2P2.

The Original Moto G Gets Its Android 5.1 Update On Verizon

The original Moto G started getting its official update to Android 5.1 in July. But those were unlocked units and we all know how operators like to test, re-test, delay, and re-delay OTA updates, so odds were that you would have to wait for months before getting it on your device if it wasn't unlocked.

Well, the odds and the stars have aligned in your favor if you're on the Verizon XT1028 version of the Moto G because Lollipop 5.1 is finally coming to you. The rollout started a few days ago so you may have already seen the notification, otherwise you should head into your phone's settings and manually check.

The Original Moto X Gets Its Android 5.1 (Yup, 5.1) Update On Sprint

Since the launch of the Moto X, Motorola has been pretty good about releasing timely Android updates... though that's been called into question recently. Apparently at least one variant of the original Moto X (the one from 2013) has been lagging a long way behind as well. The Sprint version of the phone only recently got its over-the-air update to Android 5.1 (the one from February). Before now it had been running Android 4.4.4 (the one from 2014). Ouch.
