By May 12th, 2015 AT 6:45 PM

Samsung is on the path of resurrection of its recently lost glory. It has had quite a good record when it comes to providing regular software updates for its smartphones. The company has just begun rolling out the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update for the yesteryear lower mid-range smartphone Galaxy Core Prime.

It is quite nice on the part of Samsung to update the device as nobody was hoping that the device would ever receive the update, given the fact that it is a lower mid-range smartphone. The update has started rolling out in Poland, which is a region that tends to get the software updates ahead of the rest of the world. This pretty much confirms that the update for the rest of the regions will soon commence globally.

The update comes with the build number G360FXXU1BOD9. It upgrades the software from Android 4.4 KitKat to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The update will bring along an enhanced performance, a better UI courtesy the Material Design, improved battery life and an increased stability across the system. As usual, it is going to be an over-the-air (OTA) and it will cover gradually more regions.

Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Specifications

  • 4.5-inch PLS LCD display, WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution, 233 ppi, and capacitive multitouch screen
  • Android 4.4 KitKat operating system with TouchWiz UX
  • Spreadtrum SC8830 SoC,  1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM

  • Dual-SIM (3G + 2G), HSPA+, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, A-GPS, and microUSB v2.0 port
  • 2,000 mAh removable battery

The device is currently available for Rs 7,500 across the nation. Stay tuned with us to know more about when the update will roll-out in India.
