Samsung has already delivered Android 5.0 Lollipop to many of its smartphones, but the company?s portfolio is huge and there are plenty more due for the update. The Galaxy S5 Mini for example, a device that is around a year old and is now starting to receive its upgrade to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. That?s according to Samsung's Danish website.

Samsung has already confirmed earlier in the year that the device would receive Lollipop in the second quarter, and the company seems to be living up to that timetable. There is no full confirmation on when the handset will get the update in various regions, but it is safe to say the upgrade is imminent.

Under the hood it packs a 1.4GHz quad-core processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM, while there is also a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED 720p panel, an 8 megapixel camera, and 16GB (expandable to 64GB) of storage on board.

Samsung may have scrimped on the specs, but the company has certainly kept its software in check thanks to the inclusion of hardware such as a waterproof certification, power-saving modes, a heart rate monitor, fingerprint scanner and support for Samsung's wearables.<.blockquote>
