Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA hitting Samsung Galaxy S5 in Australia now

One of our lucky readers in Australia woke up this morning to a little surprise from Samsung, Android 5.0 Lollipop has landed on his Galaxy S5.

Starting in Poland it moved across Europe, but it is now time for the land down under to have their turn. Please keep in mind that we can’t be sure if this is a full roll out for all Galaxy S5 users in Australia, but where there is one, there is sure to be more.

Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy S5 starts expanded roll out in Europe

A few weeks ago Samsung started to roll out Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) in Europe, specifically in Poland. Since the initial release Samsung has tweaked the firmware a couple of times to squash some last minute bugs. It now seems that the Korean electronics giant is happy for the firmware to start rolling out to more European countries.

According to a report on SamMobile, Android 5.0 is now available for Galaxy S5 users in Spain. It is very likely that this is just the first wave of a wider roll out which should see the Android 5.0 upgrade hit devices all across Europe.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active render gives us best look at phone yet

While Samsung has yet to confirm its existence, the number of leaked details and pics for the Galaxy S5 Active make it pretty obvious that such a device is actively in the works. Now we’re getting one the best looks at the handset we’ve had to date, thanks to a new press render from Evan Blass (aka evleaks).

The new render doesn’t tell us anything new about the device but it does better show off the handset’s aesthetics, which many argue look better than the actual Galaxy S5. With the GS5 adding water/dust resistance, you might wonder how the Galaxy S5 will be able to set itself apart from its similar-spec’d brother.
