What's that you say? Another device getting the Lollipop update? That's right, yet another Samsung smartphone, the Galaxy S4 LTE-A (GT-I9506), is being updated to the latest version of Android as we write this, a week after the standard Galaxy S4 received the update. What's notable about the Lollipop update for this device is the fact that it is already available in three different regions (Slovakia, Czech Republic, and Germany), though maybe that's not so impressive considering the Galaxy S4 LTE-A was never that widely available in the first place.

The update has a common build number for all three countries (I9506XXUDOA6), and is based on Android 5.0.1 like the Lollipop update that has rolled out for other Samsung devices. You can upgrade your Galaxy S4 LTE-A using Kies right now, or wait for the OTA notification to show up. Advanced users can also download the firmware for their respective region from our firmware section and upgrade manually. 

You can also keep track of where the Lollipop update has been released for the Galaxy S4 LTE-A through the tracker embedded below, and also check out Android 5.0 in action on the Galaxy S4 in our exclusive hands-on video.

Update: The update has now reached all Nordic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway and others), so don't forget to check if it's available for your device from the settings menu.
