We reported last week that Samsung was testing out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on the Galaxy S4, last year’s flagship smartphone. Previews of the update running on the current flagship, Galaxy S5, have already been leaked online but this is a first. Today we get a look at the preview of a leaked Galaxy S4 Android 5.0 build which not only features Lollipop but also new TouchWiz user interface from Samsung.
Samsung is one of those OEMs that slaps on a custom user interface on top of Android OS so it really won’t surprise anyone to see a new TouchWiz UI on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
According to Sammobile, which has posted the preview video online, this is an internal build of Lollipop for the Galaxy S4. They have been testing it out for a few days but report that it is riddled with bugs, which is probably why this build isn’t being leaked online for Galaxy S4 owners to try out themselves.
Until a stable enough Lollipop build for Galaxy S4 is released, which can be used as a daily driver, owners of last year’s flagship will have to make do with the preview which gives us a hint of what Google’s latest and greatest Android update will look like on this device.
