Android 5.0 Lollipop is the most anticipated Android release since Jelly Bean first hit the scene in 2012 and we’re especially excited to see what it will look like on this year’s most popular Android device, the Galaxy S5. SamMobile has gotten its hands on the latest Samsung build for Lollipop and has put together a great video showing how Samsung has refined its approach to integrating the new software with its TouchWiz overlay.

SamMobile notes that Samsung has made a lot of UI changes since the last time we saw an early build of Lollipop on the Galaxy S5, as the company has added a Galaxy Note 4-style fingerprint lock screen, animations that are much smoother than in the first build, more stock applications that have been given the Material Design treatment, improved user interface and icons on the Settings screen, and a slightly thinner systemwide font.

We still don’t know when Samsung will have its Lollipop update ready for its flagship devices but it’s clear that the company is hard at work with its second build, so a release shouldn’t be too far away.
