Android 5.0 Lollipop final Preview for Samsung Galaxy S5 gets demoed on video

Samsung logoGood news for Galaxy S5 owners, as Samsung is very close to finishing work on Android 5.0 Lollipop for this particular smartphone. A final preview version of the operating system has just been leaked online and is shown in short video.

While many still consider Android 5.0 Lollipop far behind their expectations, at least Samsung is trying to bring the update to its high-end smartphones as fast as possible.

One of the first Android 5.0 Lollipop builds leaked back in October, but it was one of the earliest versions of the operating system which was available as Android L.

Then, early this month another build of Lollipop that seemed to be in a beta stage of development popped up online. Today, the folks over at SamMobile claim that have been given the final preview version of Android 5.0 Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy S5.

This means that a release for the masses can’t be too far away. According to the latest hearsay, Samsung plans to kick off the rollout of Android 5.0 Lollipop for Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 as early as December.

However, it won’t come as a surprise if the updates will be moved to early next year if Samsung is not content with the final build.

The leaked Android 5.0 Lollipop version for Galaxy S5 still has some bugs, but apparently is much speedier than any of the previous iterations.

It looks like Samsung is working at different versions of Lollipop for various smartphones, which means the company plans to offer the upgrade in short bursts to its devices.

The Galaxy S5 version of Lollipop looks very much the same as the Galaxy S4’s which was demoed a while ago. There are a few visual changes in the Galaxy S5 build but apart from that there are no major differences between the updates.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 will be the first smartphones launched by the South Korean company to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade.

Unfortunately, the handset maker is still mum on the exact release dates for the Lollipop update. It appears that Samsung likes “leaks” more than official statements, so that in case something wrong happens and they aren’t able to commit to a deadline, they can’t be held responsible.

All in all, let’s hope world’s largest smartphone maker is going to kick off the deployment of Android 5.0 Lollipop update sooner rather than later.
