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

Naturally, then, with Lollipop being a big deal, pretty much every technology-inclined owner of an Android device is wondering when Lollipop will happen on his screen. We can't talk for all smartphones, of course, but, as it turns out, those made by Samsung will be getting the update in early 2015. At least some of them.
Indeed, Seoul-based Reuters tech correspondent, Vincent Se Young Lee, earlier today took to Twitter to share Samsung's plans for a few flagship devices as far as Lollipop is concerned. According to the apparently official info, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Note 4, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy S5 LTE-A will all get the latest sweet thing sometime "in early 2015". We can't know for sure, but it is unlikely that these will be rolled out simultaneously. Instead, Samsung will likely start off with the hotter models first, like the Note 3 and Note 4, and then continue on with the S-line. That is, of course, if nothing goes wrong between now and then.
We'll continue keeping our ear to the ground.

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.

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
