A Samsung Android 5.0 Lollipop roadmap has just leaked, and it shows when the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 will be getting updated to the newest version of Google’s mobile operating platform.
Brace for some bad news — the updates aren’t happing this season.
Many expected the Korean technology giant to release the Lollipop updates for its key device by the end of the year, but as this document lists, the first updates will only hit smartphones in 2015. Do keep in mind that this is all unconfirmed at the moment.
In the sense that the document has not been replicated elsewhere.
So there’s still hope that Android 5.0 for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4 will be available sometimes around December. The above listed document, however, sticks to the January 2015 timeframe for these two flagship devices.
It also mentions that the Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900) and the Galaxy Note 3 LTE (SM-9005) will taste the Lollipop flavor in February 2015.
And if you’re still rocking a Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500) or the Galaxy S4 LTE (GT-I9505), then you have an even longer wait at hand, sometimes until March 2015, that is provided things go according to plan. Not a very bright state to be in.
But hey, at least, you’re getting it, right?
