SamMobile confirms Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S4

Android 5.0, or Lollipop as most will prefer to call it, is all the rage these days. It’s the biggest update to the world-dominating OS in years, and users have naturally been wondering which devices will be lucky to make the jump to Lollipop. Well, thanks to our sources, we can confirm that Samsung will be updating the Galaxy S4 to Android 5.0. That shouldn’t come as surprising since the S4 is still under the 18-month update guarantee period, but it’s notable as this would mean that the Galaxy S4 will be getting its third major update after Android 4.3 and 4.4 (though as many will argue, neither were as major as 5.0, and we’d have to agree.)

The Exynos variant (GT-I9500) should receive the update first, sometime early next year, though naturally these plans can always change in the coming months based on how quickly Samsung is able to port everything over, and also on things like carrier and regional delays. In case you missed it, we’ve already given our readers an exclusive look at Android 5.0 running on the Galaxy S5, and we’re guessing Samsung will be aiming to bring the same new look of its software to the S4 as well, and likely other devices like the Galaxy Note 3.

I heard they will not roll out kitkat 4.4.4 and will upgrade to 5.0 directly. Is it true? If so that would be annoying that I have to wait to January using all buggy firmware.

It depends but they will update the device with Android 5.0 and do not expect the change of UI unless the first firmware will be released.

I mailed samsung, and they said, the i9515 will get the 5.0 at the same moment as the i9505 in France. Hope they didn’t lie..

Ok I just saw the comment above… Still, it’s not fair that the LTE version will be dalayed again…

Exactly and i expect that the history will repeats itself like on the GT-N7100’s and GT-N7105’s KitKat OTA’s

And the Snapdragon variant (GT-I9505)???????????????????????

I think it will be the next similar to the story of GT-N7100 and GT-N7105 on the KitKat update when the GT-N7100 receives the update first than the GT-N7105

Will it get the S5/Note 4 interface?

I agree with you that the S4 should get an upgrade as the interface now looks old and it needs to be updated to the latest interface so it looks brand new. Such as the NOTE 4 with a mix of S5.
