Samsung Galaxy S4 GPe Gets Android 5.0 Lollipop
Android 5.0 has just been pushed out to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition. This is the stock Android version of the phone, available from the Google Play Store.
One selling point of these models is that they are supposed to be early in line for Android updates. It should be pointed out however, that the OS being sent out OTA to the Galaxy S4 GPe is Android 5.0, not the Android 5.0.1 version that some other Google Play editions have received.
Other Google Play edition models that have received the Lollipop update include the Motorola Moto G, the HTC One M8 and the HTC One M7. All three phones received Android 5.0.1. There is no word why the Galaxy S4 Google Play edition was sent out the older version of the OS.
