Samsung has only gotten around to bringing Lollipop to two Galaxy S5 variants in the U.S. so far — the ones connected to Sprint and Verizon — but there may be a way to get it on other handsets early.

According to one Samsung staffer, your local Samsung Experience Shop can flash the company’s latest Lollipop software onto almost all Galaxy S5 handsets, but there are few caveats.


Samsung’s Electric Blue Galaxy S5 will finally be available to purchase in the United States this month — but it will be a Best Buy exclusive. Prices will start at $149.99 on a two-year contract with Verizon, and aside from its paint job, the new handset will be identical to its siblings in looks and specifications.

Evleaks on Twitter has revealed the American variant of the LG L70 which is expected to break cover via MetroPCS in the coming days. The handset is already available in Europe and this leak confirms its imminent arrival in the U.S. as well.


MetroPCS has broadened its horizons for the second time this year by expanding its LTE connectivity service to 15 new markets. The announcement was made in a single press release on the carrier’s website yesterday. The newly announced locations mean that the operator now provides 4G coverage in 45 markets across the United States.


Samsung’s largest Android-powered smartphone, the mammoth 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega, has been available in both Europe and Asia for the past couple of months now, and recently launched in the U.S. on AT&T. And just yesterday, MetroPCS officially announced that it will also start selling the Mega 6.3, starting next Monday, November 25.
