Reports regarding an Android Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 were disappointingly absent when we compiled a list of all the latest Android 5.0 news. We’ve seen an early preview build leaked on video, but Samsung has remained silent regarding Lollipop updates for any of its handsets.

However, unspecified sources are hinting that the Samsung Galaxy S5 could receive a Lollipop update sometime in December this year. Unfortunately, a full rollout timetable remains elusive so we can’t be sure if this will be region specific or not. Unlocked handsets are bound to receive an update first, but it could be a month, or perhaps even longer, before carrier branded S5s see Lollipop. Although we’re still waiting on an official word from Samsung, it seems likely that an update is coming, especially given the preview build video.
