Samsung has been working hard pushing Lollipop updates lately with more and more handsets are now getting the latest available Android.
The Galaxy Note 4 phablet finally saw a major European Lollipop rollout last week and today new information has surfaced that the curved Galaxy Note Edge is joining in on the fun. The handset is already receiving update notifications in Australia, which smells like a soak test. If everything goes smooth we should be seeing a major rollout in a few weeks or maybe even sooner.
Below are the details of the new update package:
Model name GALAXY Note Edge
Version Android 5.0.1
Build date Fri, 13 Feb 2015 23:58:14 +0000
Product code XSA
The Galaxy Note Edge is almost identical to the Galaxy Note 4 in terms of internals so it was only natural that the curvy smartphone follow closely with Android Lollipop support. The extra screen does pose a lot of software challenges so patience may be necessary to fine tune the new OS to the odd new host.
So if you are on a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Australia be sure to check for that update package regularly as the Lollipop goodness should be waiting for you. And be sure to come back with any impressions and interesting finds.
Thanks for the tip...
