Here's some good news for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini smartphone, as it is official that they would receive Google's Android 5.0 (Lollipop) OS update in the second quarter of 2015.
Confirming the above news via Twitter, the South Korea-based company has indicated a likely Q2 2015 roll-out of the Android Lollipop for Galaxy S5 handsets.
