Here’s another top 2014 device that’s getting updated to Lollipop these days, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 slate. We’re talking about the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update, that’s being rolled out for the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi unit (SM-T800), only in France for now.
The release comes over the air, so users may get an automatic notification on the device, that update is ready for download. The firmware T800XXU1BOCC brings the safety and security fixes that one expects from Android 5.0.2. The build date is March 17 2015 and if you’re a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 owner in France, you can check the update availability by going to “Menu”, then “Settings”, then “About Device” and then “Software Update and “Update on their device”.
Kies is also an option obviously. In the meantime you can also do a manual download right here. The folks of Sammobile did a preview of the Lollipop release on the Tab S big model last month and it can be seen below. Basically it shows us the Material Design updates of the device. We get a fresh approach for the multitasking, dropdown area, better battery management, bug fixes and generally a more fluid UI.
