Earlier today, many blogs reported that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the previous generation of Nexus devices was delayed because of a serious Wi-Fi related bug.

The bug was was also present in the updated Developer Preview images released by Google earlier this month. 

The Lollipop update for the Nexus devices was rumored to start on 3rd November but apparently this troublesome Wi-Fi related bug forced Google to change its plans. As reported by many users, the bug causes massive battery drain on their Nexus 5 running the latest Developer Preview when connected to Wi-Fi.


Well, the bug was just marked as fixed by Google, which is good news if it was the sole reason behind the company delaying the roll-out of Lollipop.

However, chances of Google rolling out the update later this week are pretty slim as it will need to get the OTA update tested and certified before it is ready for roll out. Rumors and leaks suggest that the company now plans on rolling out the Android 5.0 next week on 12th November.
