Galaxy S4 GPe now receiving Lollipop update

samsung galaxy s4 google play edition aa standing back

For owners of GPe devices, a pure Nexus-like experience is the name of the game. While some GPe devices have already seen their update to Lollipop (namely those manufactured by HTC), owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition (GPe) have been left in limbo for the past few weeks salivating over some hard candy.

The wait is over, as the GPe S4 is now receiving Android. 5.0.0 to be exact, thus unfortunately there is still going to be some delay if/when the 5.0.1 bug fix update trickles down. Samsung owners should make sure to check their phones over the next couple of days/weeks and prepare to bask in the material world that we are now living in.

For those that have already received Lollipop on the GS4 GPe, what do you think so far?

    Does anybody know if it’s possible to install android 5 in the other version of the galaxy s4? (not google edition)

    • Abel

      No not yet, Samsung hasn’t released it. But if you root your phone, you can install a custom Lollipop Rom.

      You can install the previous Google edition on your s4 with a little tweaking, i have it on mine plan to update it to Lollipop when the rom becomes available

        You can install custom roms without root.

            Custom roms don’t require a rooted device. They require a device with an unlocked bootloader.

      Yes, it’s called Cyanogenmod12.
