“Will my device be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update?”, is the question on every excited Android user’s mind. While it’s safe to say that devices other than the Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10 will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, it will be naive to expect more than a few handful devices to receive Android’s latest and greatest.

Lollipop has been cited as Android’s first real update since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released a few years back. With physics based animations and the much fabled Material Design, coupled with plenty of under-the-hood changes, this is exactly the kind of release Android fans had been waiting for. We have listed down some of the Android devices that are likely to get the Lollipop treatment, below.
