Now there’s a face we haven’t seen in awhile. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has fallen somewhat out of the limelight some 19 months after its release, but that doesn’t mean Samsung has forgotten about its highest selling device to date (if the Galaxy S5 has broken any records, Samsung is keeping awfully quiet about it). SamMobile has acquired information that confirms that Android Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S4 is definitely coming and will be out sometime early next year, we’d expect around the same time Lollipop drops for the Galaxy S5, once all the carrier bloating has already occured.
The TouchWiz experience on the Galaxy S4 should be quite similar to that which you’ll find on the Galaxy S5, of which we’ve already had multiple sneak peeks at. We’re actually pretty impressed that Samsung is going to update the Galaxy S4, mainly because it’s a bit of a stretch of its 18 month update guarantee and given Samsung’s sometimes spotty reputation with device updates. That said, the Galaxy S4 still ranks pretty high on Samsung’s hierachy of devices despite its age, but Galaxy S4 owners should be expecting Android Lollipop to be their last update unless the smartphone giant changes its policies.
What do you think about Android Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S4 being confirmed? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
