Samsung is moving slowly but the company will definitely roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop software update for Galaxy S5 device all over the world. If you haven’t received the update yet, it will not take too long for the update to be rolled out in your region. Here we analyze all the things that v5.0 Lollipop is going so far and what things we would see in 2-3 months.
The update is announced by the local wireless carrier and you should head about the update as soon as the wireless carrier knows for sure that the roll out is happening. Most of them announce the roll out once the process started for some users. This is unfair as user but as business moves it’s logical. They want to know for sure the roll out is proceeding and don’t want to mess up if it will not going to happen.
US Release Soon
At only one month after Google released the Lollipop update, Samsung started release the Android 5.0 Lollipop on its devices. So many countries received the Lollipop update and there are just some major markets that need to be covered. US carriers are working to finish the update and to get ready to release it to the users. Somewhere before the end of February the update should be ready and rolled out on the US market.
5.0.1 and 5.0.2?
Samsung will definitely roll out one of those two versions of Lollipop software for devices like Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 4. We know nothing about when Samsung will release the update for Galaxy S5. This might be the reason why is taking so long for US carriers to roll out the update.
It is possible that the US carriers to release the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for all Galaxy devices that received the update in other regions including Galaxy S5. This means that in US the Lollipop software will be released first.
