Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 5.0 Lollipop update is now live… in Russia


Just a couple of days after the Galaxy Note 3

got its Android 5.0 Lollipop update

in Russia, now Russian owners of the

Galaxy S4

(model number GT-I9500) can also get rid of KitKat and install the new OS instead – thanks to an official update provided by Samsung.

The Android Lollipop (5.0.1) update weighs in at a hefty 1049 MB, and will bring a lot of novelties to Samsung’s flagship from 2013 – which, by the way, ran Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch. A Material Design makeover is one of the first new things that users will notice. The update is being sent over the air, and, for now, it doesn’t appear to be available via Samsung Kies.

Sure enough, we already knew that

the Galaxy S4 would get its Lollipop update

at about this time, but we didn’t expect this to happen in Russia first.

In any case, Samsung Galaxy S4 users in other countries can certainly hope that their device will soon receive the update as well – although, as always, the exact timing depends on market and carriers. We’re really looking forward to seeing when Lollipop for the US variants of the S4 will arrive – and we’ll let you know as soon as we find out anything about this.
