It’s not that surprising given Google is expected to start shipping its new Nexus devices on November 3 including the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6. However, they might not be the only devices getting Lollipop on the November 3rd as a previous report claimed the 2013 Nexus 7 and 10 would receive an update on the same date.

Google is also reportedly set to officially launch Android Wear 2.0, the latest release of its Android wearable platform, on November 3.
