April has been a busy month for the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop on the smartphones. The update was first installed in the Nexus flagships such as the Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 7. Earlier this month, there were rumors that Sammy would not install the Android 5.0 update in its handsets but this isn’t the case. Samsung has installed the update in some of its flagships to replace the Android Kitkat which had many bugs. Below is a list of Samsung smartphones with the Android 5.0 Lollipop:
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 – The handset is eventually finally running the anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update has been availed on the AT&T, following in the footsteps of Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon who had released the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The United Cellular which is the county’s 5th largest carrier beat the AT&T by releasing the Android Lollipop early this month.
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 – AT&T was the last to release Android 5.0 update on the Galaxy S5 but it won great honors on the Samsung Galaxy S4. The AT&T was amongst the very first carriers to update the Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Galaxy S4 though this wasn’t the case in the S5 flagship. The news on the Galaxy S4 Android 5.0 update release from T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon has been quiet though many countries worldwide have already received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update roll out on the flagship.
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 – The Galaxy S3 has not yet received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. According to rumors, the handset is not set to receive the Android 5.0 update. This conclusion has been made since Samsung has not made any news and announcements regarding the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop update on the S3. Many Samsung fans are saying that the S3’s age is the reason Samsung is not releasing the Android 5.0 roll out on this flagship.
  • Galaxy Alpha – The handset has already been confirmed to have the Android 5.0 update.
