Samsung Galaxy S5 mini should get its Android 5.0 Lollipop update next quarter
Samsung updated quite a few of its handsets to Android Lollipop (including the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, and Note 4), but there are still models that haven't got the update, and the Galaxy S5 mini is among them. However, S5 mini owners should be happy to find out that Samsung plans to update the smartphone in the coming months.

According to Samsung France, the S5 mini will get Android 5.0 Lollipop in the second quarter of the year - so it could happen starting March. Most likely, the handset will get the update at about the same time not just in France, but in other regions as well.

Released in the summer of 2014, the Galaxy S5 mini can now be bought for around $350 unlocked. The handset aesthetically resembles the Galaxy S5, though it's obviously smaller, offering a 4.5-inch 720p display (instead of the 5.1-inch screen of the regular S5). Just like its bigger brother, the S5 mini is dust- and water-resistant. Other features include an 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. Depending on market, the S5 mini is powered by either a Snapdragon 400 processor, or Samsung's own Exynos 3 Quad 3470 processor.

Do you have a Galaxy S5 mini? If yes, do you think Android 5.0 Lollipop will significantly improve it?
