Samsung has started rolling out the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) OS update to Galaxy S4 LTE users in the UK.

According to a SamMobile report, the Lollipop update (version number I9505XXUHOB7) is seeding to Galaxy S4 LTE (model number GT-I9505) via Samsung Kies.

The Galaxy S4 LTE originally ran on the now outdated Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.

Last week, the Lollipop update was released for users of unlocked Galaxy S4 variants in France.

Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE users in the UK can check for newer features like 3D animation effects, improved notifications, material design user interface, ambient display feature, new lock screen notifications, battery saver feature, and a new task-manager interface that consolidates all apps at the same location.

Post installation, users can experience the "OK Google" voice command and Android Beam, which can be used in content projection.
