Here are all the flagship Android devices getting Lollipop in Canada

Android lollipop

It’s been almost three months since Lollipop made its debut but only a handful of devices have it. We’re not just talking about older devices, either. The majority of 2014 flagships have yet to receive the update. In fact, January’s Android distribution figures from Google show that Lollipop marketshare sits at less than 0.1% of installations. That isn’t enough to to get it on the marketshare chart.

Despite this bleak fact, manufacturers are working to deploy Lollipop as quickly as possible and the updates are a lot closer this side of the new year. Below is a list of the manufacturers, the devices they plan to upgrade to Lollipop, and the date or month for which the release is scheduled. Where applicable, we’ve included the Canadian release details. To be clear, every phone on this list has been confirmed

We’ll be updating this list as more announcements are made so check back if your phone doesn’t have a release date yet or isn’t on this list.
