Samsung fans around the world are still waiting patiently — or impatiently, in many cases — for the latest and greatest software to be released for their Galaxy smartphones. As big as Samsung is, the company is typically very slow to release Android software updates, but this time around it looks like things will be a bit different for Samsung fans.

Android 5.0 Lollipop builds for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4 and other phones began leaking shortly after Google released its Lollipop update to partners, suggesting that Samsung may be among the first vendors to issue the update for its phones.

Now, another new leak shows Android Lollipop on each of Samsung’s top three smartphones.

SamMobile has posted numerous videos of pre-release Android Lollipop being used on various Samsung smartphones, and now the blog is back with three new videos. This time around, the videos show an even newer Android build — Android 5.0.1 Lollipop — and it can be seen on not one but three different smartphones.

In three brief videos, Android 5.0.1 can be seen on the updated version of the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge.

In all three cases, of course, Samsung has added its TouchWiz software layer on top of Lollipop. As we can see here and as we have seen in past videos, however, TouchWiz has been updated with a flatter look to better match the new look of Google’s “Material Design.”

All three videos are embedded below.
