Rumours have been circulating about when the first major update to Lollipop was going to drop and it looks like it’s just around the corner for Samsung Galaxy S4 users.

Reports originating in China spread to XDA Developers who have released an image of an S4 running Android 5.0.1. It still hasn’t been confirmed that this is legitimate, but all the signs are pointing to an imminent launch of the update, landing on S4s soon.

The launch of Lollipop has been beset by problems from the outset, with a delayed launch, bugs in the software and manufacturers failing to roll it out to customers who are eligible for it. However, news that the update might not be too far away could spell an upturn in fortunes for the troubled operating system.

If you’re able to upgrade to Android 5.0.1, will you, or are you happy to remain one of the many users still running KitKat or Jellybean?
