Samsung Galaxy S5 Lollipop update now on T-Mobile


Various users of Samsung Galaxy S5 began receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the US back at the start of the month, as Verizon users welcomed the update’s arrival.

Android Lollipop update on T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 begins

A couple days later, Sprint joined its fellow CDMA carrier with an update of its own, but so far the GSM boys haven’t been ready to follow suit. AT&T’s still a no-show, but today there’s motion over at T-Mobile, with report of users seeing their own OTAs for the T-Mobile gadgers arrive.

That’s confirmed by T-Mobile itself, which reports that system software G900TUVU1EOB3 is available today both as an over-the-air update and one for manual installation via Samsung Kies. It’s a relatively sizable one, weighing in at just a smidge under a gigabyte – this requires that you be connected to WiFi to get this download to your phone.

It’s great to see T-Mobile follow Sprint and Verizon on the path to the Android 5.0 Lollipop on gadgets, but now this puts more pressure than ever before on AT&T for it to make with an update of its own.

We’d love to believe that means we’ll see it come along with its own Galaxy S5 Lollipop update before the month is out, but as of right now, there still aren’t any assurances from the carrier.
