Google made Android 12L official last month. At the same time, the official source code was released in AOSP as well. Since then, the developers have started building the OS on their own. Well, thanks to such codes, your eight years old Samsung Galaxy S5 can now taste Android 12L.

Samsung keeps its consumer benefits in terms of updates. So far, it has sent Android 12 OS to every eligible device. However, there are still some older series that are left behind, because they don’t fit with Samsung’s firmware update policy. Accordingly, these devices can not receive the new update officially. But, as we know Android is open-source software, so there are methods via which users of older series can also grab the new operating system version.
This time, the Galaxy S5 users can receive a taste of Android 12L through an unofficial LineagesOS 19.1 build. However, keep in mind that the build is for the Snapdragon 801-powered LTE variant. In fact, there are separate builds for the “klte” (SM-G900F/M/R4/R7/T/V/W8), “kltechn” (SM-G9006V/8V), and the “klteduos” (SM-G900FD/MD) variants.
