As we know that many vendors like HTC, Samsung, LG are on the verge of releasing the new upgrade to their flagship devices. Further these OEMs will push minor bug fixes to their customer by their own since they don’t give OTA update by Google. For the new Android 5.1 it might take long for these vendor to push them or they might skip it for few devices.
