First Android 5.0 Lollipop updates should hit the Galaxy S5 in December

Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming to the Galaxy S5, and we’ve already given our readers an exclusive look at an early version running on the device. We had already said that the Galaxy S5 would be receiving the Lollipop update sometime in late November or early December, and now we have new info from our sources that says the Android 5.0 update will go live for the Galaxy S5 in December. We weren’t given a time frame though, and you should also keep in mind that it could be a month or so from the start of the initial rollout before the device gets the update in all regions.

For those unaware, Android 5.0 Lollipop is the biggest update to the OS since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It brings a new design philosophy Google has dubbed Material Design, and as we saw in the early Android 5.0 build, Samsung is making changes to TouchWiz to match Google’s new design UX. Android 5.0 also brings a ton of new features, such as lockscreen notifications, multi-user support for phones, support for 64-bit processor, file sharing through Android Beam (a feature that has been present on Samsung devices for quite some time), and lots more. It will also offer increased performance with a switch to the new ART runtime, and better battery life through an overhaul of how Android handles background tasks.

If you haven’t already, check out Android 5.0 on the Galaxy S5 in the video below.

And Romanian language not fully supported (tts, s voice) maybe we should stop buying Samsung devices to force them to solve this problem.

Probably that means KitKat 4.4.4 will be skipped but that’s not really a problem.I”m still on KitKat 4.4.2 on my SM-G900F.Glad to see Samsung is working to bring us android 5 however take the timeframe with a BIG grant of salt because Samsung is known to make promises they can’t keep (at least not on time).For the people with a GT-I9505 i think that device will receive Lollipop to not sure though.

Yes!! Hope Android 5.0 Lollipop makes it to my NZ SM-G900F version just in time for Christmas!

Wonder why Samsung is skipping 4.4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy S5.
