[Updated] Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A (SM-G906S) is getting the Lollipop update

Samsung’s first smartphone with a Quad HD display, the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, is now receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop in South Korea. The update is currently rolling out to carrier SK Telecom’s variant (model number SM-G906S); the Android version is 5.0.1 and the build number is G906SKSU1BOB8, with the update available through Kies and through our firmware section (for the impatient folks who like to manually update).

We’ve given our readers an exclusive look at Android 5.0 running on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, and we expect the final update to be pretty much the same in terms of features and changes, which include improved performance, a refreshed TouchWiz UX with Material Design touches, better battery life, lockscreen and heads-up notifications, and more. The other two major carriers should also be pushing out the update soon, and you can be sure you will hear about it from us as and when the rollout begins.

Update: The update is rolling out to all carrier variants of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A. You can download each variant’s Android 5.0.1 firmware from our firmware section, or wait for the OTA to show up on your device.

Lollipop is garbage.
my S5 is barely use able half time. Between screen freezes, slow connect to turn on wifi and a CONSTANT Google play error. Oh ya half the battery life, I should’ve NEVER updated my phone. 10-15 battery pulls to unfreeze my phone is AWESOME. Verizon rep says “be patient, they should re re update it soon”.

I firmly believe that Samsung’s drop in market share is due its incredible slowness to upgrade firmwares. Android 5.1 is out, and most devices, even those still sold in the market place, are still on Android 4.4.2, which – with the idiotic SD Card trap an hight battery drain – is very much inferior to Android 5. My next mobile is NOT going to be a Samsung, after 5 generations I’ve bought, my next tablet is NOT going to be a Samsung either. I’ fed up!

I doubt that, most of the users doesn’t even care about the Software Updates. Only those who like messing with their phones knew what is a Software Update.
Samsung may be slow when it comes to releasing the latest updates but there has been no manufacturer that is as consistent as samsung when it comes to updates.
Say, HTC.. SONY.. etc.. how often do these companies release updates?

I have it on my S5 and it’s running great. Very fast and smooth.
Echoerom released a custom rom with a newer build I9505XXUHOB7..
Any idea where I can dowload that build?.
Been searching for two days, but all i found were its modem and bootloader.
Would be nicer if i could acquire the the full firmware.
I don’t mind doing the clean install over and over again as long as it’s a new build.

Edit: S4 rather. Hit the wrong key earlier.

It’s been a while since the rumors confirmed that our 9505 samsung will get lollipop… I have to say that we have to forget lollipop since S6 is on schedule… We will stay to kitkat firmware or we will flash unofficial rom. That’s all…
