GPE Galaxy S4 finally getting the Android 5.1 update [Download Link]

Google Play Edition Galaxy S4

#Samsung has finally wised up and decided to send out the Android 5.1 update for the Google Play Edition #GalaxyS4, which was released roughly two years ago. This smartphone features the same internals as the standard Galaxy S4, but with a stock version of Android. Given that it’s a Google product (kind of), it was expected that the handset be on top of the list in terms of updates. But sadly that hasn’t been the case.

Customers who have stuck with the device up until now will be glad to see the update though. It should appear as an OTA on your smartphone and it might help to check the Settings page if you’re not seeing it already. If you’re impatient to get the update on your device, hit this link to manually download the OTA file.

There’s no telling if Samsung will send out the upcoming Android 6.0 update for the smartphone, despite being a GPE device. For now, users will have to count their blessings to know that Samsung has finally sent out an update for the handset.

Coming from Android 5.0 (build LRX21P), users won’t notice any massive changes in terms of visuals. Strangely, the update being sent out is Android 5.1 and not Android 5.1.1, which is the most recent build. But we’re hopeful that the company will send that update over the coming days.
