AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 now getting Android 5.0.1

Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 on AT&T is now getting the Android 5.0.1 update, making the switch from Android 4.4 KitKat. This has taken quite a lot of users by surprise as AT&T hasn’t sent out this update to the Galaxy S5 yet, which is last year’s flagship while the Galaxy S4 is a two year old device. But much like it did with the HTC One M7 and the One M8, we’re guessing the carrier is prioritizing older devices first, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

So here’s what’s new with the app:

  • Songs, photos, apps, and even recent searches from one Android device can be immediately enjoyed across all of your Android devices.
  • New User Interface look and feel, more fluid motions
  • Priority mode to only allow certain notifications to get through
  • Battery saving features and remaining time left to charge or deplete indicators
  • Smart Lock to secure phone or tablet by pairing it with a trusted device like a wearable or car
  • Most frequently used settings available with just two swipes down from the top screen

The update weighs in at a hefty 947MB, so users are advised to remain on an unlimited network before downloading the update. Do you own an AT&T branded Galaxy S4? Have you seen the update on your device yet? Let us know below.
