The Galaxy S4 has the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update in a number of territories. The firmware appeared in Russia first, a few days into February, and arrived in India a week later. But what about Europe and North America? Find out all of the latest Galaxy S4 update news below.

Galaxy S4 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update globally

While the Galaxy S4 LTE-A Lollipop update is currently available in the Czech Republic, Germany and Slovakia, the good old vanilla Galaxy S4 hasn't had a whiff of Lollipop there yet (although Russian and Indian Galaxy S4's have 5.0 already).

However, Italian website Optima Italia claims that German manufacturers already have their hands on the 5.0.1 firmware in Europe, and that the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for the Galaxy S4 is due to be rolled out in Europe imminently.

SamMobile already got its hands on an early test version of Android Lollipop on the Galaxy S4, complete with refreshed TouchWiz UI, which you can check out in the video below. The final version is pretty much identical to what you see here.

Install Android 5.0.1 Lollipop on the Galaxy S4 manually

As the international Galaxy S4 firmware has already made its way online, you can install Lollipop on your device manually without having to wait for it to arrive via your carrier. It's a very simple procedure; just follow our tutorial for how to get Android 5.0.1 Lollipop on the Galaxy S4.
