The Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3 were noticed recently running a beta version of Android 5.0 Lollipop build. According to PhoneArena, the Galaxy S5 owners from the U.S. will also receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of 2014.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is the first Android version that can support 64bits CPUs. The new Android OS was released 1 month ago, more exactly on November 12. Even if, currently, the most popular Android version is the 4.4.4 KitKat one, more and more users will upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop as soon as it will be available for their devices.
For now, Android 5.0 Lollipop is installed on only 0.1% of the Android devices, but as soon as it will be available for more devices, it will quickly grow up, as KitKat did back in 2013.
