5

The latest Android Lollipop version is 5.1.1 and it seems that there are more devices receiving it these days. This is mostly because the manufacturers of these devices are preparing their devices to get updated to the Android Marshmallow.

If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, you’re living in Canada and you’re connected to TELUS or Bell carrier, you’re in luck, as this version of Android is already being rolled out for your device there. However, in the US, the Android Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be released soon enough on the T-Mobile, Verizon and US Cellular network carriers.

Android 5.1.1 Lollipop To Be Released Soon For The Galaxy Note Edge?

The Lollipop update might be released soon for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, as the update is already rolling to the Galaxy Note 4 devices. However, if you don’t want to wait until then, you can also install a custom ROM and flash it on the device, but keep in mind that you will not get further updates over-the-air, because you will not run an official Android OS version.

This is the reason why we suggest you to just wait until the OTA update will be released for your device instead of installing a custom ROM on your Galaxy Note Edge.

Android 5.1.1 Lollipop: What’s New?

One of the most important fixes in Lollipop is the one that solves the Stagefright bug, this bug was allowing hackers to steal data from Android devices by sending a MMS which, once it was opened, gave the hackers full access to all the content from the device.

At the same time, the 5.1.1 Lollipop comes with the LinkedIn application integration with the Calendar and Contacts applications. Also, the accuracy in the superior auto made has been improved, the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are now available on the drop down shortcut menu and some new icons have been added to the Settings menu.

The update will be released via over-the-air (OTA) and you will be prompted that your device is ready to get updated, we suggest you to be connected to a Wi-Fi network when you’re about to download the installation file, to not waste any mobile data, especially if you have a limited plan. At the same time, make sure that your device has at least 60-70% battery left so it won’t die while updating to Lollipop latest version.
