So what is the difference between my S4 (which got Lollipop in last weeks rollout - YAY!) and the S4 above?

The update that rolled last week was for the Cat4 version of the S4 @wickdwitch. The maximum download speed of the two devices differs, but we've covered it all off on the blog here.

 

They are both an S4, but their network capabilities are a little different Smiley Happy

Hi Tim,

 

Thanks for the update on this. Now, not sure but does the GMR refer to General Maintenance Release (maybe)?

 

If that's the case, what does that mean for us with a Cat3 S4? Does that mean we are not getting Lollipop, just an update??

 

Thanks.

It does mean that this update isn't Lollipop. But says nothing about future updates.

For now it's just an MR,  and I believe the software version will stay on 4.4.2

 

We'll confirm the details along with the release date as soon as it passes. And we'll keep talking to Samsung about whatever comes next for you guys Smiley Happy
