A few months old, Android 5.0 Lollipop has yet to become available to most Android smartphone and tablet users, but some European Android fans will surely be thrilled to find out that Lollipop upgrades for certain top handsets will finally be available for download.

Last year’s HTC One (M8) and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 are the two handsets that should be updated to Lollipop in the region.

HTC’s Jeff Gordon confirmed on Twitter that European HTC One (M8) owners will get Android 5.0 soon. “HTC One M8 owners in Europe, have a sweet tooth this morning? Check your software updates!” he said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, SamMobile notes that Samsung has started rolling out the Android 5.0 update for the Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900 model) in Russia. The build number for the update is N900XXUEBOA6, and it should be available to users in the near future either as an over-the-air (OTA) update, or via Samsung Kies. The same update should also be rolled out in other European markets where the SM-N900 model is sold.
