Samsung showcasing Galaxy Tab S running Android Lollipop at MWC

We gave our readers an exclusive preview of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Galaxy Tab S earlier this month, and it seems Samsung is now offering an official preview of the same to those who are visiting MWC. We came across the Galaxy Tab S tablets on display at the event, and both the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch models are running Android 5.0 out of the box.

The fact that these demo units are powered by Lollipop is a good sign that the official update could start rolling out very soon. Our sources have told us that the rollout will commence sometime in late March/early April, and it certainly seems like Samsung will be able to keep up with that time frame (Samsung has been really quick at updating its devices to Lollipop, and we see no reason the same trend won’t continue when it comes to the Galaxy Tab S lineup.

Oh awesome job Samsung! We are expecting a brand new tablet, such as Samsung Note 2015 edition, and you give us a lollipop? I have been waiting since October 2014 for this tablet, but that is it. I am done with Samsung; no more phones, no more tablets. Congratulations to your business department. Very wise marketing decisions.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 SM-T530. I must expect Lollipop to my tablet? Thank you for your answer.

Probably Samsung intends to release lollipop update it its tablets….but it makes some priority
Tablet S series will come at first line of its update plane…the Pro series will be considered after S series…then its less outstanding tablets will be considered after these become updated

i think the order should look like this: tab s line, note 12.2 pro, galaxy pro line, note 10.1 2014 edition, and tab 4 line. The last two might be interchangeable. just my predition though.

What the hell are you talking about when saying quick updater?
It is slower that turtle in updating their devices…
my Galaxy note 12,2 pro (wwhich is honestly more expensive than shity tab s 10.5) Has too much bugs, lag, issues and disorders when using for long time…nnot even one shity small update was released since I bought it…wwhatbthe hell is that!!
Samsung should consider taking care of pro series after passing s series because it’s not additional this time…this tablet needs relieve….thanks for your hard working
keep going guys

Because the reimplementation of mute mode is kinda delay’s it and its important especially for LTE users of Tab S(SM-T705 and SM-T805) but i am not sure about this reason but i can happen.

Lollipop for S4 i9506 ???????

alastairgreen_Nexus

Just flash the Nordic or Scandinavian Unbranded ROM but first turn off the your GT-i9506 completely (or else your bootloader will not update, because if bootloader is not updated the Wi-fi will not turn on) then boot it to download mode(power+volume down+home key) in order to flash the ROM via ODIN

No, you can just flash any SM-G900H 5.0 firmwares from SamMobile via Odin because it will not VOID KNOX if you are not rooted

Samsung quick to update? That was a joke, right?

Azar1998

well, tell me any Sony device running Lollipop RIGHT NOW… You cannot, can you?! Given that the Z4 tab we’ve seen is AOSP Lollipop ‘rip-off’ with minor modifications, this is extremely LATE.

also, the first official lollipop for a samsung device was on Dec 4th and that was for S5 if youre curious.

Bullsh!t ! Samsung really quick with updates ? Are you drunk ?
We, users on Note 4 still waiting for that goddamn update since we bought the phones. Looks like no love at all for their latest flagship. I never thought that i will say this but, i’m done with Samsung! The note 4 i have is the last Samsung phone i will ever purchase, because i didn’t pay 750euro to be forgotten!

If you had kept up to date with things, the reason the Note 4 hasn’t got Lollipop is because it’s the only device capable of running VR. They are making it compatible with that before releasing it. I know you might not want VR to work but you are not everyone. Other people will want to use VR. If you don’t want to stay with Samsung then good riddance.
