Android 5.0 Lollipop Will Soon Come to Tablets with Rockchip RK3288 SoC

Android 5.0 Lollipop has been rolled out into the wild and it already hit a bunch of tablets like the Nexus 7 (2012 & 2013) and Nexus 10 tablets. NVIDIA also announced that the update would be making its way on the Shield Tablet next week.

So hopefully, more and more manufacturers will start offering the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their tablet products, but while key players in the tech industry like ASUS or Lenovo haven’t said anything about this matter, Chinese OEMs apparently stand to win the race. Taking advantage of the fuss created around Android 5.0 Lollipop, Chinese low-cost maker Rockchip has leaked a bunch of photographs showing a tablet running Google’s latest and greatest. We don’t know much about the specs of the device, but they might make its way online soon.

According to a press release, the company is developing a version of Android 5.0 Lollipop based on the RK3288 chip platform. This is definitely good news, taken into consideration the fact that the specific chip powers a lot of products on the market. Rockchip doesn’t give us a time frame for when the update will make its way onto the products bundling the architecture, but there’s no surprise here, given the fact that the update brings about some pesky issues like Wi-Fi instability and such.
