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.

    I don't think Samsung would ignore the S4(or any variations) seeing as it's relatively recent, though I hope it's more successful than previous attempts by Samsung to update their firmware.

    Anyone knows any problem with sensor in kitkat 4.4.4? When I make a call screen blacks out. Or sensor does not work to make auto calls when I put my pgone in my ear. Or does not allow me to hear whassup voice notes in the speaker.

      Look around in settings, there's an option for turning the screen off in proximity to prevent "burning your ear", I'm not sure what it's called. It should turn back on when you look at the phone. Try playing with the black dots above the Samsung logo while in call.

      As in this case you need to factory reset your device, before reseting, you need to back up your files first. This I also have the same problem. Now is resolved.

    I have a galaxy s4 GT-I9500 and it has 4.3 still everytime I try to update it, it always says your phone has been modified. no updates available. but I know there are updates because obviously 5.0 just came out!

  • Sok Savuth 1 month ago Link

    Hi! Bridgette, so now you can update it or not yet??? I keep an eyes on the update almost everyday, but once I click on update, then it always say "The latest updates have already been installed", but actually I am using version 4.4.2, I have not been allowed to update to 4.3.0. That is why I am trying to check with our friends, they have any idea on how to get 5.0. If you have already updated your device with this new version, then please share with me on how to do it. Cheers and have a Happy New Year 2015.

    Hi! Bridgette, Thanks for your prompt response to my question. I seems strange once you update it, When I bought this phone it come with Jellybean and I have update via phone itself, I got Kitkat 4.4.2 and now I found that it can be updated to lollipop 5.0 that is why I digging for this new version. But I learn from you it seems complicate so let it be, when it can be updated then I will update. Thanks again for your response. good luck in 2015.
