Android 5.0 coming to Samsung Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II

Android 5.0 coming to Samsung Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II
Chances are that the next major release of Android, believed to be codenamed Key Lime Pie, will be announced on May 15 during the annual Google I/O developer conference. What we're also pretty sure about is that only the best of all Android devices on sale today will get it, while low-end and most mid-range models will be stuck with previous releases indefinitely. 

Samsung, in particular, is expected to update the Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S III, and Galaxy Note II smartphones to Android 5.0. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets are bound to get it as well, according to sources for Sam Mobile. Owners of many other devices, however, won't be so fortunate. The Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II, for example, are allegedly absent from the Android 5.0 list, just like the Samsung Galaxy S III mini and Samsung Galaxy Grand

In case you own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, perhaps you might want to take a look at the list below and see whether it is expected to get an Android 5.0 update. Note that the list is anything but finalized, but we doubt that things will change much until May.

Android 5.0 is expected to come to:

  • GT-I9300 – Samsung Galaxy S III
  • GT-I9305 – Samsung Galaxy S III LTE
