Carriers in the United States have gradually been releasing the Lollipop update for their users and today its Verizon’s turn to release Android 5.0 for the Galaxy Note 3. Samsung released said update for the Galaxy Note 3 quite a while back but since carriers tend to delay things, users on Verizon are getting the much awaited taste of Lollipop just now. Big Red has started rolling out the update over-the-air.
Verizon has now updated the support page for the Galaxy Note 3 on its website which confirms that Android 5.0 Lollipop is rolling out for this device. The support page also gives a brief overview of all that’s new in Lollipop.
Users who have been keeping up with Lollipop probably know by now that Android 5.0 brings new features to the table, as well as system enhancements, bug fixes, performance and stability improvements.
There’s also a major user interface overhaul courtesy of Material Design. Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface has also been tweaked a bit in Lollipop so that’s one of the biggest changes that users will notice once they install this update.
Verizon Galaxy Note 3 Lollipop update carries build number LRX21V.N900VVRUEOB6 and it’s rolling out over-the-air as you read this. If you own this device on Verizon and have been waiting for this update, better connect to a decent Wi-Fi network now, since the update comes in at 1GB.
