Firmware

Samsung Galaxy E5 is getting the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update in Russia and India

We told you Samsung’s greatest mid-range smartphones yet would be getting updated to Lollipop at some point in the future, and that day has now arrived as the update has started rolling out to the Galaxy E5 in India and Russia. The Android build is version 5.1.1 (with build number E500HXXU1BOG6); the OTA is a 744 MB download for the Indian variant, so it’s going to be one major upgrade for whoever’s rocking a Galaxy E5.

Of course, you shouldn’t be expecting the update to bring the new Galaxy S6 TouchWiz to the device, as Samsung is reserving that for new devices launching in 2015 and beyond. But what you can expect is a somewhat modified and more colorful interface, better performance, lockscreen and heads-up notifications, and hopefully an improvement in battery life as well. If you are the impatient kind, you can download the Android 5.1.1 firmware from our firmware database to do a manual upgrade, or just wait for the OTA to become available for more and more users in the coming days.

Well, what about the Galaxy E7 you may ask? As usual, we can’t really put a concrete date on when the update will commence for the phone, but it shouldn’t be too long before it comes knocking.

Hello. I have a galaxy E500H with one sim card. I installed the lollipop 5.1.1 (indian version csc E500HODD1BOG3) but i found that it’s for E500H with two sim cards.
My question is : is the last version of indian lollipop (csc E500HODD1BOH2) is for the E500H with one sim card reader? Thank you

Fantastic. Lucky E5 owner here. Was waiting for that 5.0.2 update since months. But Sammy decided to skip that and roll out 5.1.1 instead.

Only the flagships and the new J series are running this build. Not really the S6 version of Lollipop, but there’s XDA for that.

The display is not crystal clear as it was before update, after updating to lollipop text and gaming graphics are not clear as it was before and little laggy UI so it will be better if samsung fixes those bugs.

Absolutely amazing, Im from Costa Rica in Latin America and I installed the Russian versión via Odin, a Little bit slower but you should use the pone with lollipop for around 3 days in order to get it indexed. 😀 but it is absolutely better
Android 5.1.1 not even some Galaxy s6 have it
