Android 5.1.1 factory images start surfacing

Android 5.1.1 started to appear on Google’s site last week, though we weren’t really sure when it was going to start rolling out, if ever. That’s changing on Tuesday as Google begins to publish the factory images for its latest Android update.

You won’t be able to give it a whirl on your smartphone or tablet just yet, but Google does have an image for the Nexus Player in case you have one of those sitting at home. Google hasn’t revealed what sorts of changes are in the update, but it’s not going to be as significant as the jump from Android 5.0 to Android 5.1 (the naming tells us that much.) Droid-Life speculates it will probably mostly include bug fixes and performance enhancements. Maybe it will fix the RAM bloat spotted in Android 5.1 on some devices.

Hit the source to grab the build for the Nexus Player. We suspect the images for other devices will begin to surface soon, too.
