Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is now being updated to Android Lollipop
Samsung already updated many of its recent smartphones to Android Lollipop, but most of them are high-end or mid-range devices. So we're pleasantly surprised to find out that the low-end Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is now also being updated to Lollipop.

The Lollipop update is currently available for the Galaxy Core Prime (model number SM-G360F) in Poland, and we guess it's going to be released in other regions pretty soon. Earlier this year, Verizon Wireless launched its own variant of the Galaxy Core Prime, and we hope this one will also get Lollipop.

As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime is a low-end, thus unimpressive handset. Its features include a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 5 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory.

It's a bit weird that Samsung is bringing Lollipop to the Core Prime, while it may update more powerful devices like the Galaxy Note II, or even the Galaxy S4 mini (see here and here). Of course, the fact that the Note II and the S4 mini are at least 2 years old, while the Core Prime is 6 months old probably also matters.

Do you own a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime? If yes, are you surprised that it's getting Android Lollipop?
