Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus gets Android 5.0 Lollipop too

You might have already forgotten all about the Galaxy S5 Plus, even the fact that it exists, but Samsung sure hasn’t. The device is basically a cross between the ‘normal’ Galaxy S5 and the S5 LTE-A destined for South Korea. The latter model boasts a QHD touchscreen and a beefier Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset compared to the vanilla offering, and the S5 Plus pairs this SoC with the 1080p display in the Galaxy S5.

It’s been released in just a handful of countries around the world. Regardless however, Samsung chose not to forget about it when it comes to software updates. So the company has made the update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop available for the Galaxy S5 Plus (model number SM-G901F).

This might be the first Samsung rollout of version 5.0.2 of the OS, with the previous ones being either of 5.0 or 5.0.1. You’re not likely to spot any feature differences between these though, as 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 are mainly about fixing bugs.

Right now the update is out for devices bought in the Nordic region of Europe, and you can download and install it if you use Samsung’s Kies desktop software. An over-the-air rollout should commence soon too. After applying the update, you’ll be on build number G901FXXU1BOC4.
