A couple of Samsung devices are receiving a new software update today from Verizon, it will bump up both devices to Android 5.1.1, which is the most recent version of the operation system that’s available to the public. The carrier today released Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Galaxy Tab 4 8.0, it has released the update at a time when Marshmallow is just around the corner.
