Samsung Galaxy Alpha update to Android 5.0.1 to take place next month
Back in December, we passed along the word from a reliable source that the Samsung Galaxy Alphawould be updated to Android 5.0 by the end of the first quarter. That forecast might end up being a tad too optimistic. A tweet sent out earlier today by Samsung France revealed that the metal framed handset could receive the Android 5.0.1 update at any second. But with the first quarter ending at midnight tonight, an April rollout seems most likely.

The update to Android 5.0.1 will include Material Design, the 64-bit ART compiler for faster opening of apps, Project Volta for longer battery life, the new "Recent Apps" page, Lock Screen notifications, slide-down Quick Settings access from any page, security improvements, updated TouchWiz UI, bug fixes and performance enhancements.

Because of the hefty size of the update, when it does arrive, you should be using a Wi-Fi connection when downloading and installing the update. And make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%.
