The official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop Update firmware files for the International Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 have been spotted at Android-Hilfe.de forums earlier today and, you can download them right away. It means that Samsung has pushed out the new Lollipop firmware files in Germany and we can safely say that more countries will be getting the update in the following weeks.
UPDATE: Android-hilfe.de forums download link is now dead, but you can find the same Android 5.0.1 Update file for Galaxy S4 LTE at XDA-Developers here. Make sure to install the update manually only in case you're an advanced Android user.
Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 should bring the Material Design UI, Smart Lock, new TouchWiz features with some bloatware being trimmed down slightly, Device Sharing features like Multiple Users, Guest User support and Screen pinning. Some other major changes should be spotted in the camera software and throughout the entire UI of your phone.
The Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 should be much faster and the TouchWiz has to be smoother than it was on KitKat, as it now uses the better Android Runtime (ART) technology instead of the old Dalvik for running applications. The build date of this Android 5.0.1 Lollipop firmware it seems to be January 29 2015 which means that Samsung is toying with this launch for a while now.
If you're based in Germany and you own a Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE with I9505 as its model number, then you should keep an eye on your phone's notification screen as the update might be released really soon. Also, note that this update firmware might also be a leaked version and not a final OTA Update build, which is why only the tech-savvy S4 users should try to flash the new Android 5.0.1 Lollipop firmware using the Odin application.
Use the comments field and tell us if you've updated your Galaxy S4 LTE I9505 with this new firmware. In case there are some S4 LTE users in Europe that have received this new Android 5.0.1 Lollipop Update OTA (over-the-air), then you should list your country and carrier.
