A series of leaked screenshots have appeared online allegedly showcasing the latest beta build of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on both the Galaxy Note 4 and Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S4. These images come courtesy of SamMobile’s founder, D.Dorresteijn, and at first glance look to be much smoother and more fluid than the version previously demoed.
The full gallery containing all 38 photographs can be seen below.
Dorresteijn has also summarised the full list of changes that this specific Android 5.o brings to the table, which can be seen here:
