After the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S5, another Samsung smartphone is ready to embrace the Lollipop firmware. Samsung Electronics in cooperation with South Korean local carriers have started a firmware rollout that brings Android 5.0.2 operating system to Galaxy Alpha users.
Galaxy Alpha receives Android 5.0.2 update:
The new firmware based on Android 5.0.2 adds a touch of Material Design to the Samsung Galaxy Alpha (model SM-G950) smartphone, including those cool visual effects that we all love when it comes to Lollipop flavour, improved performance, a more efficient notification system, and overall a less power-hungry device, thanks to the better optimization of the operating system.
The software update to Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Galaxy Alpha is only available to South Korean right now, but, if all goes well, owners of such devices in other regions might enjoy Lollipop early, otherwise it will take a least a few more weeks to capture a OTA (over the air) firmware upgrade. Korean can also use Samsung Kies to upgrade their phone using a PC/laptop or a Mac.
