Experts have argued that the recently released Android Lollipop is the best performing operating software that Google has ever produced. The software, which was first released in October 2014 and updated with Android 5.1 in February 2015, boasts a sleeker, faster and more beautiful display. Its kinder on the battery and is fit to be used not only on phones and tablets, but also on watches.

While Android Lollipop is one of the greatest changes in usage Google has ever introduced, even with the 5.1 update the OS is not completely devoid of glitches and crashes. Thankfully, the tech giant has recognized that the Lollipop 5.1 still leaves a lot to be desired and has since released improvements of the current version.

With 5.1 released just four months ago, Google has confirmed that Android Lollipop 5.2 will be launched very soon. The new update will resolve the issues that 5.1 has failed to address. One of the most prevalent problems in the previously issued version is "memory leaks" wherein the system RAM fails to properly close apps, making the phone's performance sluggish and inefficient.

The 5.2 update aims to increase Lollipop's usage among Android phone users. Currently, it is lagging at second with only 9.7 percent of users running the current operating system. The most popular Android version is still KitKat 4.4 with 39.8 percent.

Since Google has already confirmed the release of 5.2, rumors of Android M for Muffin have begun circulating, with users speculating how Lollipop will be trumped by the upcoming release. A concept video of Android M has already been released by Android Hacks, showing an improvement of the notification function and integration of Smart Home features.

There is no word yet about the exact release date of Android 5.2, but the upgrade is scheduled to be launched in the coming months. However, Google still continues to remain mum on Android M.
