Despite the fact that Android 5.0 is still basically brand new, people are already looking ahead to what’s coming next. Right now that’s Android 5.0.1, which has already seen its factory image posted by Google for several different devices, including the Nexus 5.
Samsung-branded handsets, though, are still waiting for the official update. Thanks to the fine folks over at SamMobile, owners of the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge or the Galaxy S5 LTE-A have something to watch in preparation of the official update that could land at any point in the near future. The hands-on previews last at least a couple of minutes, with the Galaxy S5 LTE-A getting the most attention at almost five minutes, but each video does a good job of showcasing what’s new.
Speaking of new, there isn’t a lot there, but that shouldn’t be too big of a surprise considering the overall update itself isn’t huge by any means. The preview notes that there are some new features, including slow and fast-motion video capture, but the gist of the update seems to be some tweaks behind the scenes and general bug squashing. Interestingly enough, some features are present on some handsets, and not the others: Multi-User support is available on the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, but it’s absent on both the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.
It’s rumored that Samsung will start rolling out the Android 5.0.1 update sometime in January, which seems easy to believe.
