Samsung continues with the deployment of Android updates for its Galaxy series and the last to land has been Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the most recent of all the versions launched by Google to date. How could it be otherwise, the first to receive news was the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, the current flagship of the brand and its version with curved screen. The two have begun to upgrade in the United States and France, indicating that the arrival in other countries is imminent. However, the Samsung Galaxy S6 are not the only lucky, the next in the list is a mid-range phone which was launched late last summer. Is none other than the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, the ultralight Samsung smartphone will receive Android 5.1.1 Lollipop soon as confirmed from the French division of the brand.
Samsung France has posted a message on Twitter, confirming that the roll-out of the OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is imminent. The version that will be updated is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which as we said is the most current available. This release contains troubleshooting, stability improvements and minor changes to the interface and some functions, such as system interruptions. The deployment could be delayed by countries and operators, which always seem to take a bit longer to deliver updates to its customers. It is noteworthy that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is the second to receive this delivery considering a mid-range phone and usually are the first top end of the list.
When the update is available, follow the usual recommendations to avoid problems during the process. We do not know what will weigh this version, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 we are talking about was 623 Mb in total, more than enough to consume a chunk of our data rate. To avoid shocks, it is necessary that we connect to a WiFi network to download. The battery is another important point, and is not recommended to install updates with less than 50% load.
As mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha was launched late last summer and it was the terminal that opened a new era for Samsung, from the point of view of design. The Galaxy Alpha was the first to integrate metal in its design, although it only has around an aluminum frame, combined with a plastic back shell. Thus, Samsung gets a weight of just 115 grams. The technical profile is part of the upper-middle range, with features such as 4.7 inch HD screen, 12-megapixel camera or Exynos 5430 processor of eight cores and 32-bit.
