Samsung is hard at work readying the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its supported devices. So far the update has only been released for Galaxy S5 in select markets. Users in most markets, particularly North America, have been anxiously waiting for this update to drop but so far Samsung hasn’t provided a confirmed release date. Those who have a Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge should note that there is a report today claiming both of these devices will be directly updated from their existing firmware to Android 5.0.1.
Android 5.0.1 is the first incremental update for this software which Google released a few weeks back. It doesn’t bring any major changes to the operating system apart from some very crucial bug fixes and performance improvements.
Last week it was reported that Samsung is putting together the Android 5.0.1 update for Galaxy S5 LTE-A (SM-906S). Now Sammobile reports that Android 5.0.1 builds for Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge have already been created, and Samsung has every reason to jump these devices directly to the latest version of Android 5.0 Lollipop.
We have already seen a video preview of Lollipop running on Galaxy Note 4 so many of us already have an idea of what the new software will look like Samsung’s flagship phablet. Samsung has still not confirmed when this update will be released for Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge, all we can do at this point in time is sit and wait for the update to drop.
