4 Samsung Galaxy Lollipop Release Details Confirmed

A set of new Samsung Galaxy Lollipop release details have emerged today for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Samsung Galaxy S4.

In December, Samsung started rolling out the first Galaxy Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. Since then, the company has ported the new operating system to a number of different devices in a number of different regions, including the United States. As we continue to dig deeper into the year, we continue to see new Galaxy Lollipop details emerge for users around the world, and we spotted a few new bits of information today.

After a long testing process, T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update is finally available to users. Confirmed on T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 4 support page, the update is now available for download via Wi-Fi connectivity or the Samsung Kies app for PC. Samsung Kies allows users to bypass the OTA process.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update is Android 5.0.1 Lollipop version and it is over 1GB in size. The update can take up to 30 minutes to complete, so Galaxy Note 4 users will need a solid charge before starting the download. Once the update is complete, a brand new look and some other important changes will be added to the T-Mobile version of Samsung’s current flagship Galaxy Note.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop release isn’t the only update that stands out. US Cellular Galaxy Note 3 Lollipop update also starting to roll out today. The carrier has confirmed the update via its website and says the software is now rolling out over the Air. Those who want to bypass the OTA can download it with Samsung Kies.

Samsung is also starting to roll out the Galaxy Alpha Lollipop update to users in South Korea. According to this SamMobileSamsung Forcing Galaxy Alpha Lollipop update To South Korea’s three major Galaxy Alpha carriers. The update is available via OTA download or Samsung Kies.

The Galaxy Alpha Lollipop release is finally starting to recover, but there is still a long way to go. Samsung tends to slow down its update before increasing its speed. The company’s updates are also unpredictable, which means Samsung Galaxy Alpha users will need to be patient as the company works behind the scenes to deliver the Galaxy Alpha Android 5.0 upgrade.

While this news is positive for Galaxy users, there is also some bad news. Three, a UK-based carrier, says Will not release Android 5.0 Lollipop update out to Galaxy S4 mini due to memory limitations. The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini was released in 2013 and is currently running Android 4.4 KitKat. It is available in the United States on several different carriers, including AT&T.

That doesn’t mean the Galaxy S4 mini Lollipop update isn’t for everyone, but it does mean that some, if not all, Galaxy S4 mini users are likely to fall behind on Android 4.4 KitKat. Samsung still hasn’t confirmed either way.

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Lollipop update continues to roll out by leaps and bounds and recently hit the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Active on AT&T in the United States. The update is expected to gain momentum as we enter the year.


The company is in the middle of a series of other Lollipop rollouts. Last week, Samsung’s upgrade finally started rolling out to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, an update in Korea that brings the tablet to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The company is also rolling out the Samsung Galaxy A3 Lollipop update to users in Russia and also upgrading the device from Android 4.4 KitKat to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.

Samsung is also sending Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note Edge. Expect all these rollouts to continue as Samsung and its carrier partners continue to put the software through extensive behind-the-scenes testing.
