Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 heads out to more countries in Europe



The upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is bound to find its way onto more handsets rather soon, as it’s been confirmed Samsung is rolling the upgrade out to more folks in Europe. Spain has been confirmed as a recipient of the upgrade as early as this morning, and it’s possible more will be added before the new year hits.

Samsung initially began their Lollipop rollout in Poland as a bit of a test. That test was successful as Samsung was confident enough to begin rollouts throughout their home turf of South Korea, an area that typically enjoys all of Samsung’s goods ahead of the rest of the pack. Now, with Samsung’s focus squared back on Europe, we should see folks in a lot more countries get a late Christmas treat in the very near future.

Samsung’s take on Android 5.0 Lollipop is as expected: it’s still Touchwiz, albeit with a slightly different look, and they took this opportunity to introduce some of the most useful Android 5.0 features while polishing up a long list of their own. We’ll keep our ears and eyes out for any more rollouts happening down the line so stay tuned!
