Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (the wireless model that belongs to Verizon) is ready to receive the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update. This device has jumped over the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade and has decided to go straight for the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop upgrade instead. Those of you owning a Verizon Samsung Galaxy Core Prime will definitely rejoice.
When it was initially launched in February, the company promised that the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop upgrade will happen in the near future and apparently Samsung can really keep a promise.
Here is the built no. you should be looking for: LMY48B.G360VVRU3BOH3. This is an OTA update and if you have a sturdy internet connection, you should have not problem setting-it up on your Galaxy Core Prime device. A word to the wise here: do not attempt to do this upgrade while your phone is on 40% battery or less. Make sure it is charged and make sure you clear some space before you initiate the download process.
Now that Verizon has finally decided to update its Galaxy Core Prime gizmo, the latter can now also stand alongside other Core Prime devices that have received the upgrade.
If you take the leap, you should notice that the Stagefright issue will no longer be an issue as the upgrade mends it. The latter problem was not one to be ignored as hackers could easily take over one’s handset. So, it’s a good thing that a solution was found.
A brand new Material Design will also be unveiled once you perform the upgrade. Besides the latter change, users will also see several modifications regarding the lockscreen feature and more security fixes.
A simple way to see if the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop upgrade has reached your Samsung Galaxy Core Prime gizmo is to tap on Settings, then go to About device, Software update and verify Check for updates.
