If you are the owner of an LTE-equipped Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 (SM-T335), you’ve probably been lamenting the fact that your device has been left behind on a seemingly obsolete version of Android, version 4.4.2 KitKat.

We’re all very impatiently waiting on Qualcomm to release their Snapdragon 810 SoC early next year, but until then we’re just going to have to drool over what it’s going to bring to high-end Android phones in 2015.
