Samsung might take a long time to bring out major new versions of Android to its devices, but it also manages to offer long-lasting support to at least its flagship devices. The Galaxy S5 is still getting minor software updates, and it just got another one in India this week. Sadly, the update doesn’t bump up the build number, so the device remains on Android 5.0 after the update. We’re also unclear of what is included in the update, though regular improvements and fixes are likely to be a part of the package.
Samsung has said that it does include changes from newer iterations of Android even if it doesn’t bump up the build number, but it’s still disappointing to see the company isn’t making that clear and is keeping the S5 (and other devices) on 5.0. In any case, if you’re rocking a Galaxy S5 in India, expect to see the update hit your device over the course of the week. Some of you have probably already gotten a notification for the OTA, but if you haven’t, you can force it to show up from the Settings » About device » Software update menu or download the full firmware from our database and upgrade manually.
