android l galaxy s5

Samsung was caught teasing Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 earlier in the week suggesting the company was well underway on the big update for the big phablet. But what about the smaller, yet older brother released early in the year? According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S5 won’t take long to find its bag of candy, as well.

Purported sources suggest the Samsung Galaxy S5’s Lollipop update is expected to begin rolling out this December, a very welcome timeline considering most companies are playing it safe by estimating early 2015. That Samsung hasn’t come out and said anything about their plans to beat everyone to the punch suggests they don’t have total faith in their ability to reach that deadline, though we sure won’t reprimand them from trying.

Recent leaks have already given us an early look at how Samsung would be fusing both TouchWiz and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Doesn’t look quite as clean as stock, but it does seem to be a very nice change of pace over TouchWiz’s current drags. Let’s hope to hear something in a more official capacity before too long.
