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?

It would be stupid to release a 64bit capable phone without updating to lollipop I guess.

Well, actually this are the phones Samsung is making money on them all over the world. You think everybody is buying S6 or Note4? Nope, this line is money maker for them for long time...

Good to hear that samsung is now supporting low to midrange phone in software upadates, but it is bad that s4 mini won't receive the update even it has higher RAM. Grand prime will be updating in lollipop too!

This actually seems like a pretty good phone for mums and young kids, especially now with Lollipop.
