Verizon announced earlier this week that it had started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to its Galaxy S5 variant, and now Sprint is following suit by updating its own variant. As announced on Samsung’s FAQ page for the Sprint Galaxy S5, Android 5.0 Lollipop will begin to rollout to the device tomorrow, February 5th.

According to the FAQ page, the update will carry the build number G900PVPU1AOA6 and include all of the features we’ve come to know and love in Android 5.0. Most notably, this includes the Material Design interface elements. The update coming to Sprint’s device is Android 5.0, not anything higher, such as Android 5.0.2. Google earlier today revealed Android 5.1 for Android One devices.

The full changelog for the update from Sprint is below and can be found on Samsung’s website as well.

  • Android OS update to v5.0 Lollipop
  • Enhanced VoWiFi UI
  • Lumen tool bar removed
