Samsung has already started rolling out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the company’s current S-series flagship, the Galaxy S5, and now it looks like the Galaxy S4, Note 4 (review) and Note 3 are next in line to get the same treatment soon. According to Seoul-based Reuters tech correspondent, Vincent Se Young Lee, Samsung plans to release Android 5.0 to the Galaxy S4, Note 3, Note 4 and Galaxy S5 LTE-A flagships by early 2015.
There’s no confirmation when Samsung plans to release the new Android build to other models, but we hope to hear an official word from the brand in the coming weeks.
For those unaware, Android 5.0 Lollipop was unveiled in mid-October along with the Google Nexus 6 and Nexus 9. The updated OS is based on Google new design philosophy, which the company calls Material Design. It offers a bold, colourful and responsive UI design for an intuitive experience across devices.
