The Android Lollipop update for Samsung's Galaxy Alpha is now in full swing. American carrier AT&T starting rolling out its upgrade for the Alpha a couple of weeks ago, and now the device is getting the newest full Android build in South Korea too. Indeed, if you are rocking the Galaxy Alpha on any of the nations? big three carriers you should be getting the update shortly.

That means customers on SK Telecom, Korea Telecom Freetel, and LG Telecom will all be able to pull in the update for Samsung's handset. The Galaxy Alpha was the first to sport Sammy's new premium design ethos, an aesthetic look we have seen expand to the Galaxy A series, Galaxy Note 4/Note Edge, and the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge flagships.

The update in question brings Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to the Galaxy Alpha over the air or through Samsung's own KIES software. While the update here is in South Korea only, it is worth mentioning that the Android Lollipop software is likely to arrive on the Alpha in most regions in the coming weeks. To check, you can manually pull the upgrade by heading to Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Version > Check for updates.
