It won’t just be candy canes making this December sweet, as rumour has it the Android 5.0 Lollipop will be rolled out to the Samsung Galaxy S5 during the festive season.
According to Sam Mobile, Samsung will be acquiring the update, which was originally only confirmed for a number of HTC, Sony and Motorola devices.
It was only earlier this month that a video was leaked suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S5 was running with Android L, and if this news is true then Android lovers can be sure to expect a number of new, interesting features added to their devices.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop is the most anticipated and biggest update since the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich two years ago and will bring into play Google’s new design idea named Material Design.
Making it more apparent that Samsung will be using the update is the fact that it is making changes to its TouchWiz feature to match Google’s new designs.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop will bring to the device a plethora of new features, including multi-user support for phones, lockscreen notifications, support for 54-bit processor and file sharing through Android Beam, to name but a few.
Users can also expect a better battery life, as well as increased performance of their device.
So far, Motorola has confirmed that the update will be made to the majority of its smartphones including the Moto X, Moto G, Moto E and Droid Mini. Sony’s Z series of smartphones as well as tablets will be some of the first devices to have the update.
However, as things tend to go in the world of smartphones, there hasn’t been an official confirmation that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be updating and what date exactly it is supposed to take place. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for more news.
