From waiting for OEM’s to carriers, it can be a massive headache waiting to have your smartphone jump onto the latest Android operating system update. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop has been out for a while now and smartphone owners are still holding out hope that the latest operating system update will be compatible and given support. Today we’re learning that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition will be updated to the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system. Strangely enough this update won’t affect too many people as the smartphone isn’t even released onto the market quite yet.
Samsung’s Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition hasn’t even been officially announced yet but according to YouMobile, the smartphone will be receiving the update. Earlier this month, we reported leaked information about the handset which apparently states that the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition will be similar to the regular Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime smartphone. If you can recall the 2014 release of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime handset, it features a 5-inch qHD display with a resolution of 960 x 540. Located on the rear of the handset device is an 8-megapixel camera while flipping the device around you’ll find the front face features a 5-megapixel camera. Additionally, powering the handset is a Snapdragon 410 64-bit octa-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage.
With the new Android 5.1.1 update on the Value Edition, there will be improvements in stability and security. Furthermore, there will be a new TouchWiz user interface, changes within the notifications panel along with some added tweaks into the lock screen interface. Unfortunately, this news will be disheartening to those who own the 2014 handset release of the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. So far there is no word on when or even if the smartphone will make the jump to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Instead, the handset is stuck on the Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system. Although, it could be a good sign and indication that the smartphone will eventually see the operating system update with the value edition of the handset seeing the update right out of the box but again, this is purely speculation.
