Samsung’s 2013 flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, is getting upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop. This has been confirmed for the Exynos-based GT-I9500 version though.
Apart from bringing Material Design to the handset, the new update comes with an updated TouchWiz UI coded by Samsung. The update purportedly makes the device faster and enables for better battery efficiency.
The update weighs about 990MB so you have to keep a lot of space on your device’s internal storage as well as a good and reliable data bundle and fully charged battery while upgrading to avoid stopping halfway.
For the records, the Galaxy S4 was released running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS but has since been been seeded to Android 4.3, Android 4.4 KitKat and now Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. Thanks to Samsung’s upkeep of old flagships, users can have their phones running with the latest software.
