Since Google officially released Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA updates for its Nexus branded devices, all the other companies are developing their own Lollipop firmwares. Thus, future OTA roll outs are being prepared in partnership with carriers and retails from around the world. The French carrier SFR decided to announce its Android 5.0 plans for the following period, so if you own a Samsung branded smartphone or tablet in France, then you might want to read the following lines.
The first to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop OTA update is Samsung Galaxy S5. SFR will release the compatible firmware this month (the exact date isn’t provided though). Then, Galaxy Note 4 will shortly follow, as the phablet will embrace Android 5.0 in early January. SFR is also rolling out Lollipop firmwares for LG G3 and Motorola Moto G, while other devices will be updated to latest Android OS next year, probably in February.
Other plans are including KitKat roll outs for Galaxy Mega, Galaxy Grand 2, Galaxy Note 2 4G, Galaxy Express 2 and lot more. Android 4.4.4 OTAs will also embrace other smartphones through SFR as the carrier is planning to update Sony Xperia E3, Xperia M2, Xperia T3 and HTC One M8.
