Phone makers have a history of using the European country as its testing ground for new Android updates before deploying them to the rest of the planet. This latest development is no exception. More importantly, it is a sure indication that Android 5.0 Lollipop will soon be available to other countries as well.
It should be noted that the Poland's version of the Galaxy S5 features the same model numbers as the version being used in most European countries, so there is a good chance that European users will get the Android updated sooner than those in other regions. By virtue of being the home country of Samsung, South Korea will also likely begin its Android 5.0 Lollipop very soon. Other regions should get their updates before the year is over.
As for the United States -- well, let us just say that things are a bit complicated in this region. Android updates in America usually take a while because not only do the phone makers test them, the wireless carriers also need to first certify and then map out the roll out to their respective subscribers. With that in mind, Americans may get their Galaxy S5 devices updated after the holidays.
A lot of people are pretty excited about the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop. And there is plenty to be excited about. The latest Android version features a new look (referred to as Material Design) which makes use of clever animated elements and a better organized feel and layout. Notifications now display on the lock screen. A newly added menu called Overview displays currently running apps as a stack of playing cards. Then there's the new Battery Saver mode, which lets your Android device conserve more power when your battery is running low. Android 5.0 Lollipop has already started rolling out for other devices, namely the Moto X and Moto G smartphones last month, and Google's Nexus devices (Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10).
