Samsung has bad reputation when it comes to updating their flagships on time, but looks like it all going to change soon. Samsung has already teased sometime before about Android L for Galaxy Note 4.
Today the folks at Sammobile posted a new video showing Android Lollipop running on a Galaxy S5. This is the second video released by Sammobile about Android L on Galaxy S5.
The new video shows Galaxy S5 is running a test software with build number LRX02E. Samsung added new changes to cope with Android L material design. There are many new noticeable tweak for setting and different apps. Samsung is also bring many new tweaks to TouchWiz interface. The current version of the TouchWiz running on the Galaxy S5 we found was actually much easier on the eyes and in some respects, not too far — at least in color scheme — to what Google introduced in Lollipop.
Here is a list of new changes which will come with Android Lollipop for Galaxy S5.
