Last updated: March 17th, 2015 at 10:24 UTC+02:00

Good news, owners of the Galaxy S4 Black Edition! Despite being the handsome phone that the S4 Black Edition is, it still requires firmware updates and the likes as any other phone on the market. Which is why, Samsung has announced the much anticipated Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for the phone.
