Samsung has teased that Android 5.0 Lollipop update would be coming soon on its latest flagship phablet, Galaxy Note 4. The company has tweeted out an image of the Galaxy Note 4 with lollipops displayed on its screen and around the phone, suggesting that the newest Android version would land on the device sooner.
Along with the image, the company also posted that “Anyway you look at it, the #GALAXYNote4 Quad HD Super AMOLED display is pretty sweet”. This shows that Samsung is pretty serious about updating their flagship devices to latest Android version as soon as possible.
The company has not announced the date of the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Note 4, but SamMobile has posted that Android Lollipop update to the Galaxy Note 4 will arrive in late November or early December.
According to a report from SamMobile, the Galaxy S5 is likely to get a Lollipop update as well, but perhaps a bit later than the Galaxy Note 4. Purported sources suggest that the Android 5.0 Lollipop is expected to be released for the Samsung Galaxy S5 sometime in December.
Sony, HTC and Motorola have already mentioned their plans to upgrade some of their devices to Lollipop.
Motorola updated its support page last week with a list of handsets that will get Android 5.0 Lollipop in the future. The devices include Motorola’s Moto X, Moto G, Moto E, Droid Ultra and Droid Mini.
Sony also announced last week that Android 5.0 Lollipop will be released for the entire Xperia Z series devices, which includes Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1S, Xperia Z Ultra, Xperia Z1 Compact, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3v, Xperia Z3 Compact and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
According to Sony, the Z Ultra Google Play edition devices will be the first to get the update. The Z2 and Z3 series will receive the Lollipop update in early 2015.
When it comes to HTC, a leak earlier this week suggested that the company’s HTC One (M7) and HTC One (M8) Google Play edition devices are likely to get the update between November and December, while the standard versions with HTC’s Sense user interface could receive the update starting between January and February of next year.
