It's (kind of) official: Note 3, Note 4, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 LTE-A to get Android 5.0 Lollipop in "early 2015"

Why even release a release date when you don't have a real release date?

First of all, they didn't release 'dates'. Also, these rollouts are done in phases for different regions so a specific date for all the handsets for all different region is a bit difficult to get to.
Lastly, are you trying to say that you'd take no information at all then an approx release date ?

It takes time and preperations to do test. Would u rather have them RUSH OUT with the software with bugs? I know my Z1 is getting 5.0. But I'd rather wait till all the BUGS ARE FIX first.

On top of preparation and tests, carriers will want to put their bloatware in it first before it gets rolled out, so there's delays there. Verizon Note 4 likely won't see it until mid 2015.

It is far better. Nobody want S5 but getting Note 4.

Agreed. The Note is a better device anyday but it does not sell more than Galaxy S phones. I have a Note 3 and I am holding off till Note 5. But the Glaxy S line is more consumer friendly and easier to hold in the hand whereas the Note series is meant for specific consumer groups and yes in the phablet group all hail the Note

How about S4 Active? As always, variant versions always left behind.

Nothing about Galaxy Alpha? Samsung is kidding with Alpa users!!!

I would expect that the 5.0 update will come out sometime between the time that the Galaxy S6 is announced & the Galaxy S6 is released. That's mostly based on past updates to their devices.

YES!!! My Verizon Note 3 will have 5.0 by next Christmas! Maybe? Probably the week after I get my Note 5.
