    I'm due an upgrade of my mobile. Probably going to go for the Samsung S5, but it comes with "Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2" If I'm being supplied a brand new phone why don't I get the latest version of Android?

    I only ask this out of interest, it won't stop me going for the phone.

    It will depend to some extent on model, country and carrier.

    It may not have 5.0 or 4.4 (depending on carrier as noted by the previous poster) out of the box but you'll almost certainly get a prompt for the update shortly after booting.

    Those spec pages were written when the device was released, at the time that was the latest version and the page just never got updated.

    Ditto. Chances are, they may already have the update out of the box.

    So it's possible my new phone will have, or allow me to update to, Android 5?

    If the update is available, then yes.
