Well, this is obviously a good news that Lineage OS 16 for Galaxy S5 is on the way but it is not certain when. The reason being almost nothing works on this LineageOS 16 build yet.

If you see from haggertk’s reply that the LineagegOS 16 on Galaxy S5 (running on Snapdragon 801, MSM8974) does not have many important things working, such as: the RIL (network), no camera… and pretty much many things.
haggertk has also clarified that he is not gonna release this build in this state.
