October will be a huge month for Android. As well as the introduction of Google’s new Moto X-like Nexus smartphone, there’s also the small matter of the rumored Android L release to contend with, and although the Nexus will surely be the first to ship with the Big G’s new mobile OS out of the box, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 won’t be too far behind.

Notably, it’s laden with an all-new “Material Design,” but aside from tweaking the aesthetics, there are plenty of enhancements on the functionality side of things. As it has just emerged, multi-user support is also in the offing for smartphones, and given how families and groups like to share devices, seems a natural progression that perhaps should have arrived much earlier.
