Samsung Galaxy Alpha to get Lollipop update this month

If you own the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, you must be wondering when your smartphone will be updated to Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop). According to Samsung France, the update will be rolling out to the device this April.


Samsung France made this revelation in a tweet:
