In SDK Manager the latest version of Google’s mobile operating was found and it should come as no surprise that Android is due for a new version release at some point though. Although, Google has started seeding the Android 5.1 Lollipop update to many devices, but concerned with the reported memory leak issue that hasn’t been fixed with it. More details on the new Android 5.1.1 update after this jump!
Now thanks to an SDK update, and according to Android Police, who first found that has a good reason to anticipate the latest version, which is probably due out in the very near future. The Android SDK manager pushes the new 5.1.1 Lollipop update as part of the SDK package, and that too under the development platform and also ensures a quick release to the devices running Android 5.1 for now.
Enthusiasts should see a new revision to the Platform SDK with a product description that reads “Android SDK Platform 5.1.1.” And developers be banking on this version to get the memory leak issue that drains battery and deteriorates performance fixed.
Now that the 5.1.1 version is out there, it stands to how Google has finalized the code and is either running some final tests or preparing for a roll out. AOSP still hasn’t been updated with the new release, but we can only expect that to change very soon. Once it is finalized, new source code and firmwares usually comes out in fairly short period of time.
