Galaxy Alpha could receive Android 5.1.1 soon

Galaxy Alpha

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone will soon receive the Android 5.1.1 update according to the company’s French division. The company mentions that the SM-G850 version of the Galaxy Alpha will be getting the update, although we don’t think other variants will be far off from getting Android 5.1.1.

While it’s possible that the update will be sent out to the French and other European variants of the Galaxy Alpha, the American variants might take some more time to get the update, if history is any indication.

We’re guessing the Android 5.1.1 update will bring along similar changes to the Galaxy Alpha as we saw with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the likes, so don’t expect Samsung to miss out on any of the new features that we saw with the recent Android 5.1.1 update.

The Galaxy Alpha was Samsung’s first attempt at a unibody design and has received widespread acclaim as well. However, internally it was a midrange device at best, so we didn’t see it making too much noise in the mobile industry. The relatively steep pricing didn’t help Samsung’s cause either.
