Note 4 Lollipop


We already saw the Hands-on video of the Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop 5.0.1 updateHowever, Samsung didn't release the update yet on any region, even the old Galaxy Note 3 got its official Lollipop update in some regions...


Where's the Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop Update ?


Well, it turns out that Samsung delayed the Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop 5.0.1 update due to compatibility issues with Samsung Gear VR. Samsung needs to make sure that the Gear VR will work well on the Note 4 Lollipop ROM, so far the Galaxy Note 4 ROM is still in the hands of Oculus VR who are tweaking the kernel to ensure its compatibility with the Samsung Gear VR.


Samsung Gear VR is Samsung's current take on virtual reality headset based on the popular Oculus Rift. While compatibility issues might explain the delay the question still stands why this can't be achieved in a later update. It looks like Gear VR is very important to Samsung that it delayed the full Lollipop roll-out for it.



Note 3 Lollipop


Samsung has started Rolling-out the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop update OTA (Over-the-air) to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900). Starting with Russia first, Other countries will get their localized versions of same update starting from next week, region by region.


Looks like the Note 3 is beating the Galaxy Note 4 in the race to get Lollipop. The update brings the modern Material design to the 2013 phablet. Samsung's TouchWiz overlay on the Note 3 was criticized for not being optimized for the large screen, and that is now going to change.




Other improvements, inherent to the new OS version are increased battery life and a general performance boost. The Android 5.0 update is said to carry some of the latest Galaxy Note 4 features over to its older brother, better multi-window support being one example.

Update Hands-on [video]

Samsung is currently testing its Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 To confirm this news, an official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop ROM for the S4 has been leaked online today. The files were posted on a Chinese forum and spread around on XDA. Seems like the Galaxy S4 users will skip the 5.0 Update and get 5.0.1 directly.




The Leaked ROM is packs Android 5.0.1 build and according to the original source should be good for GT-I9500/9502/9508/9508v versions. The nice folks over at XDA have been playing around with the new software for a few hours now and it appears to be a legitimate official Samsung firmware as opposed to the recent Aurora ports of the leaked Note 3 software. A few things need to be noted about the Galaxy S4 ROM, though.

A stock English keyboard is also missing, but that is easily fixable. Other than that the build seems to be doing well in terms of functionality. NFC, sbeam, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G DATA, Wi-Fi, all sensors for motion and light, hotspot function, Multiwindow all seem to be in working order, as reported by various early adopters.

Samsung has updated the user manual for the Galaxy Note 4 to reflect on the changes the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is bringing. The firmware update is anticipated to land some time this month and the latest manual is a strong indication that the wait for owners of the phone will soon be over.


A video demonstrating Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 surfaced last month. In it, we saw that the general look and fell of TouchWiz UI is left untouched, with the new release bringing only minor visual changes most notable in the notification area.

There should be a lot more going on under the hood though with expected major performance boost and improved battery thanks to Project Volta.
