Samsung is yet to release the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its devices in the U.S., even though it has already pushed out the update for Galaxy S5 in certain markets, still the company hasn’t officially confirmed when the release is going to take place today. An alleged internal document has appeared online today claiming to show the release timeframe of Android 5.0 for Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4. The person who published the document online claims to be a Samsung employee.

This document was first posted on reddit by user SamsungRep2015, who was verified by a reddit moderator, who said that this document was sent through email today to all stores “in preparation for the new quarter and the new year.” The email included instructions on how to prepare for the rollout.

Apparently Galaxy S5 is “getting the most attention for the update,” at least that’s what this Samsung employee says, after which the company is going to focus on Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.

Once that’s done Samsung will move towards older devices like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 4, with tablets coming after them. The accompanying screenshot of the email shows that the rollout is likely to begin in January.

Carriers can often play a major part in holding up the release of a new software update. Looks like Samsung is pushing them to speed up things as well as the employee says that “Samsung is whipping carriers and getting directly involved to ship updates faster.”

It obviously goes without saying that this shouldn’t be considered as an official confirmation from Samsung. The company is yet to detail its Lollipop roadmap for the U.S. but hopefully users wouldn’t have to wait too long for Android 5.0.
