Samsung, the South Korean giant, is planning to release the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note 3. The latest operating system from Google has been making the rounds on several Android devices, but Samsung handsets have been left behind.
However, recent leaks of the Galaxy Note 4 running Lollipop has suggested that Samsung might release the new update sooner rather than later. The leaked image showed more than just the notification and lock screen, which could be a sign that the operating system is in the final stages of being ported to the handset.
It’s not easy to tell if these images are fake, though the design screams Samsung in so many ways.
Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note 3
If Samsung is indeed working on porting Android 5.0 to the Galaxy Note 4, then it means the Galaxy Note 3 is bound to be a part of the process as well. Samsung centric website, SamMobile has gotten its hands on a beta version of the Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4, and has said Samsung is working on porting the operating system to the Galaxy Note 3.
On the matter of the Galaxy S5, Samsung is also working on porting the operating system to the device.
In the past, it was reported that Samsung is focusing on releasing Android 4.4 KitKat to several of its Galaxy line of devices, so it is very interesting to see the company looking ahead with Lollipop. Samsung at the moment is staying silent on the matter because maybe the South Korean giant is planning to surprise users for the Christmas holiday.
The majority of the modern flock of Galaxy devices will likely get an update for Android 5.0 in the near future. However, the rumored Galaxy S6 is expected to launch with the operating system instead of the older Android 4.4 KitKat.
Until the day comes, Samsung users will have to wait it out a little bit longer until the company has worked out all the bugs. It is not certain when this might happen, but we expect Samsung to release the operating system sooner rather than later.
At the moment, several Android devices such as the Motorola Moto X, Moto G, Droid Turbo, Moto G 4G LTE, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, Droid Mini and Moto E, have all been updated with the new software.
