Android L may hit Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 by early December


Although Android L was first released as a developer preview back in the summer during Google I/O, no official release date for Google’s next iteration of their mobile operating system has been announced. Nevertheless, as Google continues to push out application updates that incorporate their new Material Design guidelines that are a big part of Android L, we get a sense that the time is quickly approaching. That could be within the next couple months as a new report suggests Samsung is gearing up to have Android L ready to roll out to their flagship devices by late November or early December. The sources indicate Samsung will be ready with Android L for both the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 during that time frame.

For many consumers, the wait may be a bit longer though as the update goes through carrier certifications. Android fans are probably hopeful that Google, the smartphone manufacturers and the carriers are getting better at putting the operating system together in such a way that a major update can be rolled out much more quickly than in the past.

    I guess that means the update for the Verizon LG G3 will come out December, 2015, a year later. . . . (sarcasm)

    What about the S4? I paid GOOD money for this phone and not ready to upgrade! It should definitely roll out to the S4!

    I hope they bring it to the tablets they released this year (tab pro and tab s) just as quick.
