Samsung Galaxy S5 DSC05763

We know owners of Samsung devices (or any other manufacturer for that matter) are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Android 5.0 Lollipop. After initially rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S5 in Poland as sort of a test run, it was more recently we saw the update begin spreading through Europe.

Of course, the next logical question is when users here in the states can expect it to arrive, especially considering carriers can often times delay these updates at their discretion, testing compatibility with their networks and pre-installed applications.

If you’ve ever visited a Best Buy, you’re probably familiar with those Samsung booths with countless Galaxy devices on display for shoppers to play with. Well, it seems Samsung has begun briefing their retail associates (reps) with some info on the impending Lollipop update.

According to an email obtained by one verified associate, the update is set to begin rolling out as early as January, with the main focus being on the Galaxy S5 (unsurprisingly), followed by the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge after that. Once those are out of the way, expect the rollout to hit the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Samsung Galaxy S4, followed closely by Samsung’s tablet line.

Now, the jury is still out on which carrier could be the first to push out Lollipop for the Galaxy S5, Note 4, or Edge, but it seems Samsung is definitely doing their part to make sure the update is released in a timely fashion. Who da thunk it?
