Google’s latest sweet treat has certainly brought quite a few changes with it to the Android world. Not only was Android 5.0 Lollipop the first version of Android to receive a developer preview, it was the first version to support 64-bit processors and the first version to debut on a Nexus-branded phablet. Beyond that, Lollipop has also signaled a change when it comes to the speed in which OEMs upgrade their devices.
For the first time in Google history, Motorola’s devices actually saw Lollipop ahead of nearly all Nexus devices, and companies such as LG, Nvidia and HTC have all been pretty open and aggressive with their Lollipop plans as well. But what about Samsung? Generally not the quickest of the bunch, we have seen quite a few unofficial peeks at what the Touchwiz-laden version of Lollipop will look like but Samsung has been pretty quiet about when the update might arrive, leaving the rumor mill to fill in the gaps. If a new report from SamMobile proves correct, that day may have come! Samsung has reportedly started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F).
Like we’ve seen with many other Samsung updates in the past, the first market to receive the update appears to be Poland. No word on if any other country has received the update yet, but we imagine it’s only a matter of time. It’s important to note we can’t confirm with 100% certainty that Lollipop really is rolling out to GS5 users in Poland, though SamMobile is generally a very trustworthy source when it comes to Samsung-related news.
What do you think, if the rollout really is a-go, are you impressed to see Android Lollipop already making its way to select GS5 devices? We’ll be sure to update you as soon as we learn more about the rollout.
