NEW YORK: Samsung Galaxy S3 owners who are looking forward to an OS update can now install Android 5.0 Lollipop custom ROM.
According to GSM Arena’s specs list for the smart phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3 was released in the market on May 2012 and the latest update currently available for the smart phone is Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
It was previously confirmed that the Galaxy S3 will not receive any further updates after the Android 4.4 Kit Kat. This means that an official Android 5.0 Lollipop update won’t be available for the phone.
However, because of the genius XDA custom Android developers, it is now possible for Samsung Galaxy S3 owners to experience the latest mobile operating system from Google. Recently, an AOSP or Android Open Source Project custom ROM rolled out for the 2012 flagship smart phone from the South Korean tech giant.
According to Android Origin, users who can install Android 5.0 Lollipop update via AOSP ROM are those who have the Exynos variant of the smart phone. Moreover, the model number of the Samsung Galaxy S3 should be GT-I9300.
