Android Lollipop isn’t yet on a variety of devices, though broyght with it big visual changes, but now what to know about the upcoming Android M. Internally codenamed as Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). Guaruntees updates for Nexus devices, and know more on this topic right after this jump.

Google’s I/O 2015 conference in front and we aren’t sure but apparent that the search giant could announced its next mobile OS, Android M. Rumored information leaked and speculated as well, and if Google is really going to announce it, then its likely to give a hard cut-offs for Nexus devices update support. Actually, with every new update, Google will assure major updates for 2 years and security patches for 3 years on Nexus devices, or else provide security upgrades for at least 18 months from the date of purchase through Google Play or Google Store, and will apply for both the older and newer versions. There are no more guessing about which devices will get updates and for how long, but the older ones are going to stay on Lollipop.

So by means the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012) and the Google Nexus 10 won’t be getting the Android M update, but will be receiving a security patch. Devices like Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) will be getting a a garuntee update of Android M and security patches as well till begenning of Q3 2016.

Clarified, that the Nexus 5 will be on the full OTA train until this coming fall, then it should drop to security patches for another year. The N6 and N9 are still for sale, and don’t know for sure when it will stop getting security update, but still gets system OTAs until at least fall of next year.

Alleged that Google will announce a new update garuntee for Nexus devices alingside Android M. Updates on non-Nexus Android-powered device are still “?“. Whether the Big G announces Android M at I/O is unknown at this point, however, you should take this information with a pinch of salt as its not yet officially confirmed.

Update: Google has an internal code name for Android M, just as it did for L and K. It’s called Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC), a name which is already being referenced in AOSP, and Googlers are using it as “mnc-dev”. Don’t expect Google to acknowledge this name in public, though.
