Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition receives Android 5.0 Lollipop update

Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition LollipopThe Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition (GPe) is now being updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop. This version of the Galaxy S4 is available directly through the Google Play Store and offers a stock Android experience to its users. It should be pointed out that OTA update being pushed out to the device brings Android 5.0 and not the newer Android 5.0.1 update.

Other Google Play edition models that have received the Lollipop update include the Motorola Moto G, the HTC One M8 and the HTC One (M7). But all three phones were updated to Android 5.0.1. There is no word why the Galaxy S4 Google Play edition was sent out the older version of the OS.

As far as carrier branded phones are concerned, we are still a few months away from seeing Android 5.0 updates sent out by the mobile operators. There has not been a definite word from Samsung, but HTC has promised that the update would be sent out to its carrier branded flagships within 90 days after Google turned over the final code to the manufacturer. That means that owners of those two models should start to see the update by early February.
