Back in August, Google retired the Galaxy S4 Google Play edition. It had been one of only three phones to survive the big July GPe purge – the other two, the One M8 and Moto G, continue to be listed on Google Play to this day (though neither’s currently available for purchase). But even with the GS4 GPe put out to pasture, support for the phone’s far from over, and tonight we witness it join the growing ranks of Play edition models receiving their Lollipop updates.

Models like Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra and the HTC One M8 may have beaten the Galaxy S4 to the Lollipop update table, but Samsung’s pure Google model isn’t too, too far behind. This release isn’t the very latest Android 5.0.1 that’s become available for a good number of Nexus models by now, and is the slightly earlier 5.0, instead. Really, we’re not sweating the details, and any flavor of Lollipop is good news in our book.

If you haven’t seen your update notification land yet, just be a little patient, as this one is sure to take some time to reach everyone. Just keep the faith that it’s most definitely on its way, and you’ll soon be rocking the (very nearly) latest Android build.
