Sources: Samsung Galaxy S4 to receive Lollipop update

Samsung-centric tech blog Sam Mobile has once again called upon the power of their Samsung sources and all but confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 – last year’s flagship smartphone – will get an official update to Android 5.0. That’s as close we come to confirming it without an official announcement from the South Korean gadget giant.

Samsung gives second preview of Lollipop for Galaxy S5

It looks like Samsung is eager to show people how Android 5.0 will marry with TouchWiz on their current smartphone flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5. A month ago, the Korean gadget giant offered a preview on the alpha build of Android Lollipop for the Galaxy S5. Today, we will be seeing more of the progress Samsung is making into building TouchWiz for this new version of Android.

Samsung Galaxy S3 given an Android KitKat lifeline

Not too long ago, Samsung made a decision that the international version of the Samsung Galaxy SIII (I9300) – one of its most popular phones ever – is not going to get an official TouchWiz Android 4.4 KitKat update. Cue the sound of millions of hearts of Galaxy SIII owners breaking, as most of them were really still hoping against hope that it would happen. Now the Galaxy SIII is given a lifeline through community development by “arter97”, an XDA Senior Member, with a port from a Korean SIII variant that had an official KitKat update.

Samsung adds to Galaxy line with new Kitkat budget phones

Samsung is looking to expand its line of Galaxy phones (does anyone actually know how many there are now?) with four new additions that will sit cleanly at the “budget phone” strata for the South Korean smartphone giant – the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2, and the Galaxy Star 2. Allow us to briefly take you through the highlights of each.

Samsung’s notification bar may get the KitKat treatment

With the Samsung-Google partnership, a lot has been speculated. Much of the talk involves Android, and Samsung’s increasing pull away from what Google envisions it to be. If Google is trying to bring Samsung back to center with regard to Android’s new styling and operation, there might be a hint it’s already begun.
