Samsung appears to be getting very close to releasing the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphone. A strong indicator that this is close to happening is the availability of the manual for the Galaxy Note 4 that has been updated to include screenshots and information referring to Android Lollipop.
Reports from people who have seen some early builds of Lollipop on both the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S 5 indicate Samsung did a good job of incorporating Google’s Material Design philosophy into the TouchWiz UI. The notification area and animations used by Samsung mimic the default Android Lollipop, so anyone familiar with Lollipop should not be in for any surprises.
Even within apps like the Dialer or Contacts, Samsung has incorporated Google’s design standards, so users will see a fresh splash of color when using these apps. There is still no word on exactly when Samsung will release the Lollipop update or how long it will take carriers to prepare their own updates to roll out to users.
