According to SlashGear, Samsung Galaxy S5 isn’t going to get Android M update which is a bit strange since it only had one major update so far: Android Lollipop, and most devices get two. Instead, we can expect the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 to be updated as soon as Android M hits the market.
Google’s upcoming OS will be a big step from Android Lollipop and everyone is looking forward to it. We know that among the listed features, Android M will bring forward some brilliant features such as screen splitting, better volume controls and possible theming support but the latter hasn’t been confirmed yet. Samsung’s devices have a tricky update history but it appears that the S5 won’t be getting the latest edition of Android after all. Instead, tthis year’s devices are definitely on their way to Android M according to SlashGear which is pretty good. It also appears that the Galaxy Note Edge will also get the Android M update which is pretty good, but it still raises the question: why isn’t the S5 on the list?
Android M Release Date
We have no idea when Google will unleash the next operating system, but most sources point to September. It’s the same month as the launch date of the two new Nexus devices: the Huawei Nexus 6 and the LG Nexus 5, and we know that Nexus devices are always the first ones to get the latest version of Android which means that it’s prety safe to assume that Android M will be unleashed next month. In the meantime we’ll keep watching the developer previews for new features and bug fixes.
