Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 should be on the lookout for a notification letting them know an update is available. Samsung has started rolling out the update to Android Lollipop for the WiFi version of the tablet. This update is hitting about one month after Samsung started updating the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 to Lollipop. Like the update that went out for that larger device, Samsung is basing this update for the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 on Android 5.0.2.

Like most major updates these days, Samsung is deploying the update in a phased manner, so it may take a little while before it shows up on user devices. The update will be available over-the-air or through Samsung Kies.
