Google’s new Android TV Launcher is now available through the Play Store, allowing the search giant to deliver new features and improvements more easily. That doesn’t mean you’ll be able to download and install it on unsupported devices, though.

Huawei today announced its new Honor 6 Plus smartphone at an event in Beijing, and the device is already getting a lot of attention for having almost exactly the same name as Apple’s latest flagship.

Despite what you may think, however, this isn’t just another iPhone clone. Instead, it’s a flagship Android phablet with some impressive specifications, including an integrated coprocessor for fitness tracking, a massive battery, and two 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras that promise sharper images and some incredible features.

Android 5.0.1 has been available for over a week for a number Nexus devices — but only if you were willing to download the factory images and flash them manually. Now Google’s rolling out its latest Lollipop update — which brings improved stability and performance — over the air.

HTC had hoped to finally get it out to users on Monday, but according to the company’s vice president of product management, Mo Versi, the update still hasn’t been given the approval it needs for rollout.
