Samsung has kept quiet regarding its plans for Android 5.0 Lollipop, aside from a teaser image of the Galaxy Note 4 amidst Lollipops of course. However, the Note 4 is shipping with Android KitKat and the Korean company has not given any specific dates as to when any of its smartphones will get Google's latest and greatest software. However, reports are starting to paint a clearer picture.

Noted and normally trustworthy Samsung tipster SamMobile has come to the conclusion that Android 5.0 Lollipop will land on the Galaxy S5 flagship in December. There is no word on other Samsung high end handsets, such as the Note 4, but I assume they will be treated to the update at the same time or at least shortly after.

Android 5.0 landed last week after months of waiting to launch. It will initially roll out on Google's Nexus devices in November and will also arrive on Google Play Edition handsets during the month. Many of Samsung's rivals such as HTC, Sony, and Motorola have pencilled in their devices to be updated within 90 days, and some a little longer. That means most will be starting to get Lollipop during January of 2015.

If Samsung bumps its current Galaxy S5 flagship to Android 5.0 in December, the company will likely be the first OEM to do so. If it does land it will almost certainly roll out in stages and will still be subject to being passed by carriers first. Although, I would not be holding my breath for a December update for the GS5.
