The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 has been a frequently mentioned device on Android Police the last couple of weeks. The Wi-Fi model was recently discounted for a short time with the Verizon and AT&T LTE models following shortly after. I imagine at least a few of our readers may have snatched one up while the price was hot. For you lucky new owners (and also those who previously purchased it) we have some good news – Lollipop is here.


The Lollipop update will bump the Tab S to Android version 5.0.2, which is admittedly not as desirable as a 5.1 build, but at least it's better than KitKat. Users looking to Lollify their tablets have a couple of different ways to do so. The easiest option would be to wait for the OTA to hit your device or, if you're not the patient type, you can check to see if the update is available for your region via Samsung's Kies software.

SamMobile also will be hosting Lollipop builds for the various international models, but the site currently only has the Lollipop firmware for the Korean version. I would recommend checking the site periodically over the next couple of days as other regions' firmware will soon be added.

The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 got its own update just a few weeks back, but still missing are updates for the LTE versions of both the 8.4 and 10.5 inch models. I would imagine they will arrive shortly and we will let you know as soon as we hear they are available.
