Samsung rolls out Lollipop for the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 Wi-Fi and LTE models

Here’s another indication of how focused Samsung is on updating its devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Korean manufacturer has now started seeding the update to the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, kicking off the process for its mid-range devices. A nice thing this time around is that Samsung is updating both the Wi-Fi and LTE models at the same time, even though the rollout is taking place in different regions.

The Wi-Fi model (SM-T530) is receiving the update in Spain, while the LTE model (SM-T530) is getting updated in the Nordic region. The update is based on Android 5.0.2 and carries the same build number (XXU1BOD8) for both variants. We’re not sure if the OTA is reaching users just yet, but you can grab the update via Samsung Kies on your PC. As always, more adventurous folks can download the firmware from our database to upgrade manually and start enjoying the Lollipop experience without waiting.

It remains to be seen if the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and 8.0 will be making the jump to Android 5.0 anytime soon. We’ll keep our fingers crossed and hope it doesn’t take too long for Samsung to turn its attention to the smaller Tab 4 models.
