The Samsung Galaxy S4 is hardly a new device these days, in fact, it was launched in March 2013 and is now 18 months old. However, while some company's cut off support at this point of a smartphones' life, Samsung's old flagship was a monster seller and is still in the hands of tens of millions of people around the world. It's good then that the company is continuing to support the handset and will be sending out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Galaxy S4.

Samsung usually adheres to the 18 month limit, even for flagships, but there would be a lot of disgruntled users with the S4, so I think the Korean giant is doing a good thing. It is worth mentioning that for the time being only the Exynos packing version of the Galaxy S4 is being talked about for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

SamMobile reports that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Korean variant will be getting the update early in 2015, and while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 variant is not mentioned I assume it too will get a bump eventually. Although, it will probably have to wait a short while after the Exynos version gets the candy based new Android with the snazzy new Material Design UI.

The Galaxy S4 remains a potent mid-range option that is now very affordable, and with Android 5.0 it will continue to be a solid alternative below flagship. It has 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p Full HD screen, 16GB to 64GB of on board storage, a microSD card slot, and a 13 megapixel rear camera lens.
