Samsung has finally started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its flagship device, the Galaxy Note 4, months after it was launched. The software update to the device has come to South Korea just a day after its OTA (Over-The-Air) update was made available in select regions of Poland.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update in South Korea is only for the Exynos variant of the Galaxy Note 4, according to a report by SamMobile. It added that Samsung bring software updates to its Snapdragon models first in the past but not this time, hinting that it would have used only Exynos processors in the Galaxy S6.
The update (build number N910SKSU1BOB4) is available only for Galaxy Note 4 users on SK Telecom as of now but it is expected to come to other major carriers soon, according to the website. The update is currently available on Samsung Kies and the OTA update is expected to arrive soon.
It may be mentioned that Samsung pushed out new software updates to its flagship devices first until now but it surprised many by releasing the Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Galaxy Note 3 first, sparking off speculations that the new firmware had issues with the Oculus VR in the Note 4.
Poland was the first country to get Android 5.0 Lollipop update, and now South Korea, hinting that it would be pushed to other countries eventually.
Owners of the Galaxy Note 4 can select "Yes, I'm in" option >> on receiving update notifications, then select >> "Install now" after downloading is done. The device will restart automatically and start running with the new version.
Users can check for updates by going to Settings >> About phone >> System update.
