San Francisco : Google has announced that its new Android operating system, Lollipop, is set for release Friday, and also presented new models of Nexus products to compete with Apple, reports IANS/EFE.

The new operating system represents a big step forward on account of its new design and characteristics, the company said.

“Lollipop is our largest, most ambitious release on Android,” Google affirmed, adding that the latest upgrade of Android has been designed to be flexible and work in all different devices.

The new smartphone Nexus 6, the tablet Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player console are similarly priced or are slightly cheaper than those of Apple, marking a change in Google’s earlier strategy of selling its products much cheaper than its rival.
