The Galaxy S5 was unveiled in 2014 as their flagship device by Samsung and back then, it was a pioneer in terms of the innovations that it brought to the Samsung smartphone line-up. It was the first Samsung smartphone ever to sport a heartbeat sensor, a fingerprint sensor, as well as having dust and water resistance capabilities. Nonetheless, it is over two year old now and smartphones do have a tendency to age fast. If you have a S5, then you would be pleased to know that Samsung has not forgotten about it yet. The latest reports suggest that after rolling Android M as an OTA update in South Korea earlier, the Korean manufacturer has now started to roll out the same updates for the S5 in Trinidad and Tobago as well.
As far as we know, the latest updates are being released for the SM-G900M and earlier, they were upgrading the SM-G900L in South Korea with Android Marshmallow. Provided that you are in Trinidad and Tobago, go to Settings, About device and Check for updates to see if the update has arrived on your Galaxy S5 yet. Once the 1.47GB package does arrive and you complete the update, the Android version on your phone should change to 6.0.1 and the firmware version to G900MUBU1CPC3.
If you are neither a resident of South Korea or Trinidad and Tobago, you will have to wait longer for the update unfortunately. If it is any consolation, the update is coming to your Samsung Galaxy S5 for sure, albeit a little later.
Back in March of 2014, HTC chose to unveil its most recent flagship, the One M8, in New York and London, at its own dedicated event. For whatever reason, the company obviously didn't feel like an announcement at CES (January) or MWC (March) was appropriate, and according to @upleaks, HTC may be planning a repeat of that arrangement with the oft-rumored Hima One M9.
If you're just catching up on Hima, here's what we know so far. The device will have a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 resolution display, a quad-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB RAM, a 2840 mAh battery, and surprise-surprise, a 20.7-megapixel camera.
That's right, it would appear that HTC may very well be ditching the UltraPixel tech that's been keeping its devices a step behind competitors, and that's definitely good news. The One M9 is expected to come in the typical HTC color palette: Gray, Silver, and Gold.
