The race to Android 5.0 Lollipop may have been won already, but users of older handsets, nevertheless, keep the faith.

Following the Mobile World Congress' launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge and HTC One M9, reports over the latest Lollipop upgrades have continued popping around the web. 

Check out the wrap below:

Android 5.1 Lollipop Upgrades

At this point, a number of Nexus smartphones have been spotted running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Master Herald reported. For one, the upgrade is reportedly found in the Nexus 6 with build LMY40. The same upgrade is found in the Nexus 5, believed to have been made on Feb. 16.

Joining this list is the Nexus 4, to which Android leaker Myce is credited for publishing screen shots. Owning build LMY36B, the device allegedly runs on the firmware update codenamed "Mako."

The Master Herald also took note of Android 5.1 in the 2012 Nexus 7, with build LMY47D. This is said to be different from what's first coming to the 2013 model.

As we have previously noted, the first-generation Moto G and its "superiors" are expected to get Android 5.1. The XT1033 Moto G, in particular, has reportedly received testing. One Google Plus user has even claimed that the update is a "very good upgrade and has no bugs."

Android 5.0 Lollipop Upgrades

LG's 2013 flagship, the LG G2, is spotted running Android 5.0.1, the Christian Post said in its recent article.

Mo Versi, VP of Product Management at HTC America, has confirmed that HTC One M7 units under T-Mobile are bound to receive Lollipop. He said in a tweet, "HTC One (M7) T-Mobile Owners! We've received technical approval on the L OS and OTA will start on Tuesday."

Users can therefore expect update seeding on Mar. 10, which can be downloaded over Wi-Fi or cellular network. The update is expected to bring all major Lollipop features, GSMArena noted.

Meanwhile, Galaxy Note 4 units from Europe are up for the handset's first Android 5.0.2 Lollipop custom ROM. The firmware is developed by the CyanogenMod team.

The Nightly build comes in a package worth 257MB. It must be noted, however, that flashing will only work for the Galaxy Note 4 handsets with build N910F. The model number may be verified by going to Setting > About Phone, International Business Times reminded.

Flashing custom ROMs requires very technical steps. As we have always recommended download and installation of over-the-air (OTA) updates, The Latino Post will not be liable and accountable to any untoward incidents you may encounter in the process. In any instance, backing up of files is encouraged.
