The Samsung Galaxy Alpha which was released to the masses in August last year has now received a spanking new software update – if you happen to be rocking to the particular model that hails from AT&T, of course. This particular handset is a start from Samsung, which underlines their intention to the rest of the world that they are pretty much capable of working with metal just as well as with plastic as the smartphone’s material of choice. There is still plastic in the Galaxy Alpha, make no mistake about it, but it does sport a sturdy metal frame which will make it have that premium feel and look to it.
Unfortunately, the latest software update for the Galaxy Alpha has nothing to do with the long awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop version, but rather, this Over The Air (OTA) update will see the software version get a bump to G850AUCU1ANL1, which will weigh in at a mere 17MB. Now that is a rather small update when you think about it, and it should not be too much to ask for you to download it via your data plan rather than rely on a Wi-Fi connection. Your handset will remain at Android 4.4.4 KitKat, too. Do expect that Samsung calls “user experience enhancements” with this update.
