Samsung rolling out the Android 5.0 update for the Exynos powered Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 was launched in two chipset variants as we are all aware. The Snapdragon 801 model catered to LTE and other crucial global markets, while the models with the Exynos 5 Octa chip were reserved for non-LTE markets. Hot on the heels of the Android 5.0 update hitting the Verizon variant yesterday, a new report suggests that Samsung has also begun the rollout on models with the Exynos chips.

Users with the Galaxy S5 bearing the model number SM-G900H are reportedly seeing the Lollipop update on their devices as of today. The company is expected to have begun the rollout of the update from Kazakhstan, with more countries expected to follow suit. These variants are mostly concentrated towards the Middle East and some parts of Asia, so it might take Samsung a couple of weeks to completely finish the rollout of the update.

Regardless, it’s good to see that the manufacturer has the update ready for global variants of its flagship as well, just as the LTE markets begin to get it. Some European regions have received the update as early as a month ago, so Samsung hasn’t been very consistent with its update rollout.
