Samsung is beginning to push out a major software update to Australian retail Galaxy Note Edge units (those sold without carrier intervention) model SM-N915G, bringing them up to Android 5.0 Lollipop, reports SamMobile.
The update brings Google’s new Material Design user interface to the device (or perhaps rather, Samsung’s interpretation of it), along with a host of new features and improvements to existing ones – we’re talking heads-up notifications, the new multitasking UI, multiple user accounts, guest user mode, Android Smart Lock and more. SamMobile also says that the update will bring improved battery life, upgraded security and performance to the device. Bonus!
The update is approximately 1018MB, so it’s probably worth updating over Wi-Fi. Remember that OS updates roll out slowly, but you can manually check if the update is available for your device by going to Settings, under About phone, in the Software update menu.
