    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.
