Samsung Galaxy S5 owners are going to be excited because a new operating system update is rolling out in the near future.
The Android Lollipop 5.0 update will soon come to users in the United States. This comes after the software update in the United Kingdom on January 13. The software update didn't really come as a surprise since an anonymous US Samsung employee spilled the beans in a Reddit forum weeks before the UK release.
The said employee posted a link to the internal email in a Reddit forum, which confirmed the Android Lollipop 5.0 update for Samsung devices in January. He entertained a few questions from users for a while and then deleted his profile.
Naturally, some people are doubtful of the legitimacy of the information. But Reddit moderators confirmed that it was, indeed, a real Samsung employee. They said that the poster sent a photo showing he does work for the company. It wasn't clear, however, where exactly in the company he works or what the scope of his job is.
Any doubts were clearly erased after UK Samsung owners got the chance to update their operating systems. Now, it's very certain that US owners are next. Before the UK update, Android users in Poland, Russia, Spain and Malaysia already had their Galaxy S5s updated to the newest Android software.
According to the spoiler, the S5 is top priority for the updates. Next would be the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge. Then the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4.
It's not surprising why users are excited with the Android 5.0. This update has, for starters, a colorful, bold and responsive UI design. It's intuitive and will make working with all your devices a breeze. It also offers a more convenient way to control the way you receive message and minimize disruptions. It also offers longer power; it extends the device battery by up to 90 minutes. And, most importantly, allows you to keep your stuff safe.
