RTE has confirmed that Android 5.0 Lollipop will arrive later this year.
The company’s EMEA Head of Mobile Networks and Devices, Michael Tocher, said that the Lollipop update will arrive in March, while the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will hit the market in April.
The announcement comes ahead of a major Android 5 update in May.
Android 6 will be released to the market this year, with a Lollipop upgrade planned for the second half of 2018.
Android 5 Lollipop is expected to be released sometime in the summer of 2019, with Android 6 Marshmallow expected to arrive later in 2020.
The new Android 5 is expected for both smartphones and tablets.
The update will also see support for the next-generation 4G LTE bands, which will help Android users access new apps and services more easily.
Tocer said that Android 6 would be released on the Nexus line, which has traditionally been the first Android phone to receive Android 5 updates.
Google has not yet officially confirmed that a Nexus phone will get Android 6, but it has already confirmed that its Android 6 update will be available for both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6.
Google said last month that it was also working on a new Nexus tablet and that it had a tentative date for its first tablet to arrive.
Google’s Nexus line is already the most popular Android phone line.
Other major Android OEMs such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola and Lenovo are also working to bring their devices to Android 6 as well.
Google did not confirm whether or not it plans to roll out Android 6 to the Nexus 10, Nexus 9, Nexus 7 and Nexus 9+ devices.
It is also unclear if Android 6 is compatible with the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.
