Samsung’s own website is displaying an Official release of Lollipop 5.0.1 for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
Alpha Lollipop Update
This update is displaying on the Swedish, Danish and Finnish Samsung Websites so it would seem that maybe Scandinavia will be receiving the first Galaxy Alpha Lollipop Update.
With Samsung rolling out Google Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop) OS update to users of its older flagship models, a few mid-range smartphones will also get the much anticipated firmware upgrade.
Users of Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha should get the Android Lollipop update for their devices THIS MONTH.
A YouMobile report quotes Samsung France’s official twitter account as saying “Android Lollipop update for the ALPHA is currently being “deployed” and the update is “imminent”.”
This rollout is also expected to begin from Denmark, Sweden and Finland before moving to other regions of the world.
Currently, Android Lollipop is seeding to Samsung’s Galaxy S4 LTE edition in UK, with users of carrier driven Galaxy smartphones in US also reporting the roll-out for the Alpha Lollipop Update.
It is however a bit of a frustration for Samsung Galaxy Alpha owners who have been left last in the queue. This was a flagship priced model that performs very well but seemed to get forgotten by Samsung almost immediately after release. Come on Samsung! It’s loyal customers who purchased the Galaxy Alpha.
13th July 2015
Just a quick addition. Can you believe that we are now mid way through July and we still don’t know when the OTA Galaxy Alpha Lollipop Update will be with us?
Should I even be commenting on this post anymore?
It is now nearly September.. Two weeks away from being a whole year since the Samsung Galaxy Alpha was launched here in the UK.
Nearly Ten months since Android Lollipops release to the general market and yet using a Galaxy Alpha to write this post I (We) am still waiting for the Lollipop update.
Samsung… this is a disgrace. Get your act together or start losing some more loyal customers.
