Someone at Samsung and/or AT&T must be just giving this stuff away, and whoever you are, we thank you. After leaks of the official Android 4.0 ROM for both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket, the same update for the plus-sized Galaxy Note has also appeared. You can download it now [...]
We all know that for all of Samsung ’s tech nous, the South Korean company can’t very well launch the most recent Lollipop firmware versions for all their top-of-the-line devices at the same time. This would be confusing as heck for them and so we understand (grudgingly) the delay. However, leaks like this – an official-ish Android 5.0.
This morning the folks at Microsoft Garage have released the newest version of Next Lock Screen. This is arguably the first time the lock screen has truly lived up to its promise - bringing you everything you need in terms of notifications - to your lockscreen with great ease.
Well, great news for users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and owners of the edgier Samsung Galaxy Edge – it looks like Samsung is going to skip the Android 5.0 Lollipop update and go directly to the most recent 5.0.1 update, if these leaked images are anything to go by. If you are not familiar with Android 5.0.1, it is a small but important bug fix update to the initial Android 5.
While some information on a company’s official website can sometimes be erroneous, one can relatively be safe in at least giving it the benefit of doubt. Like this new information which appears on the Finnish language section of the Samsung website which reveals probable Lollipop updates for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the venerable Galaxy Note 2.
We've been focusing our attention to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge a lot lately because the two are hot subjects of reviews and stress tests but we haven't forgotten about the Samsung Galaxy S4 . The 2013 flagship can still get the sweet mobile OS update from AT&T. This was one of those many expected things since the Android Lollipop for the Galaxy S4 LTE-A is ready for download.
CyanogenMod is still – arguably – one of the best at applying the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) flavor of Android to after-market software and making them so fiiiiiine. And they haven’t stopped. Today, they officially released nightly builds of CM12 – that is, CyanogenMod 12, the Android 5.
More and more people are getting themselves excited for their smartphones and tablets to be upgraded to Android 5.0 by their manufacturers, and Samsung users are not exempt from the hype. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – last year’s flagship phablet – is scheduled to get a bump to Lollipop, but lo and behold, here we have a Lollipop build leaked for the device.
As a bit of a holiday gift from the likes of Samsung, it would seem, both the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 have been added to lists of devices which will be getting an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. This update was NOT expected as previous lists shared by Samsung suggested that the cutoff point would be the Galaxy Note 3 from last year.
The beta Lollipop build for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 might just have slipped through cracks in security, allowing some users to get the OTA update early and accidentally. From a post in the XDA forums, it looks like a user in Vietnam was able to download an update to Lollipop for his Galaxy Note 3 , although it looks like it’s not the final build yet. Vietnamese user apparently saw the Android 5.
We know the Samsung Galaxy S4 is getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update but we don't know when the Russians would be able to get their hands on the sweet version. A Galaxy S4 with Lollipop build was leaked a few months ago after a related rumor came out. Of course, the Android 5.0 update was officially released for the Galaxy S4 but only made available in a few countries.
Starting January 2015, Samsung devices will start to get a taste of Lollipop. This is according to an unnamed Samsung employee. According to this employee, Samsung recently sent out an email that included instructions on how to prepare devices for the Lollipop update. The information seems legit and it’s not really unexpected.
When checking out a new app, you’ll typically see a disclaimer that your device must be running a newer Android version, typically 4.0 or better. Unless you have a newer flagship device, you might even wonder if you’re running a version that can support the app in question. With Google’s newly announced Android figures, you can probably rest assured; about 90% of Android users are on 4.0.
This is a testament to how well Samsung built the Galaxy S3, that it is still alive and kicking – and custom Lollipop ROMs are still being built for it today. We have to remember that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was once king of the smartphone world, and a lot of units are still being used even to this day.
MWC 2015 is happening next week which means there will be another surge of leaks, rumors, and early announcements from gadget manufacturers leading to opening day. One of the highly anticipated phones is the Galaxy S6 , Samsung's next Android flagship smartphone.
The company's current Galaxy S5 smartphone comes with a 16-megapixel camera.Two of the most noticeable improvements we may see in Samsung's Galaxy S5 successor could be in its screen and camera, if a new leak turns out to be accurate. Chinese website CNMO has discovered the specifications for Samsung's rumored Galaxy S6 buried within the popular benchmarking tool AnTuTu ( via 9to5Google ).
Last month we learned that T-Mobile is busy prepping up units for Android 5.0 Lollipop . The carrier even has a dedicated page for software updates to inform subscribers of the status.Phones under T-Mobile now eligible for the sweet Lollipop upgrade include the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), HTC One M8, and the Galaxy S5.
As we saw yesterday via IDC's numbers , Android is on a lot of smartphones, and many of those phones travel with their owners to work everyday. Google wants to put them to good use, and as such it has announced the official launch of Android for Work, which we previously heard about last summer.
