Samsung’s Galaxy A series next in line for Lollipop update, no word on Android 5.1 yet

The new range of Samsung Galaxy A series smartphones appears to be in line to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop soon. This comes as great news for owners of devices from this range, but what’s interesting is that the company has still not begun working on the Android 5.1 update for any of its handsets.

Included in the Samsung Galaxy A range are the A3, the A5 and the A7 smartphones which are highlighted by their solid metal builds. They of course come pre-installed with the Android 4.4 KitKat OS on them. With the Lollipop update, they will not only be blessed with the new features from Google’s OS, but will also be granted a TouhWiz design overhaul.

SamMobile has learnt about the Galaxy A series update news through an insider source which has revealed that the company has started working on the software for these handsets. With so much on its hands, it’s not surprising that the manufacturer is finding no time to dedicate to the Android 5.1 update.
