Samsung Galaxy Smartphones that have been confirmed with Android 5.0 Update in late 2013.

So Android 5.0 is going to be unveiled at the Google I/O in May 2013. However, as usual practice there will be a bunch of smartphones that are included or excluded from the list of upgrade. This time we have found from Sammobile a list of Samsung Galaxy Series that will stop at Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and some of them are Android 5.0 compatible. Strange, from the list we couldn’t find the Galaxy S IV which was revealed last week with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the latest version of Samsung Touchwiz. One happy news for those holding Galaxy Note II or Galaxy Note II LTE will get Android 5.0 update later this year through OTA. Sadly, it seems the phones that were released before 2012, especially for some very famous and popular device like the original Galaxy Note and Galaxy S III mini will not get the Android 5.0 update. If you must get the Android 5.0 on your device, you might need to try some alternatives such as rooting and installing some custom mod on your devices but you might need to take the risk of bricking your phone.

It is hoped that the list isn’t updated because the GS4 is apparently left out from the list. It leaves a blank space for people to fill in. Will Samsung actually release Tizen OS in time to get an update for the GS4? Or the GS4 will finally get an Android 5.0 update? Shin, the Samsung Mobile Director claimed that Samsung has maintained vert good cooperative relationship with each other. However, in the press conference at the Radio City, New York City, for the release of Samsung GS4, they haven’t even said a sentence with the word “Android”. What’s the plan behind all this? Does Samsung actually has already got a plan for the after-sales service for the GS4?
