Just after the big Android 6.0 re-cap this week with Google’s Nexus launch, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners are reporting the arrival of their Android 5.1.1 update. The update is for the Note 4, but it appears that Note Edge owners may be seeing the update as well.
Brandon over on our Google+ community sent us a heads up about the 674MB OTA update which was received on his retail model of the Galaxy Note 4 he purchased from the Good Guys. As well as a few feature updates, the update also includes fixes for version 1 of Stagefright, so that’s a bonus.
As well as retail units, it seems that Australian carriers are also pushing the update with a smattering of reports from Telstra users advising the OTA has hit their handsets. The Telstra rollout to the Note 4 and Note Edge is confirmed in their latest software update on their forums, and it appears that Vodafone customers should see the update on their Note 4 and Note Edge either now, or very soon as well according to their update page.
Optus is the lone holdout, with the update listed as ‘New release 5.1.1 + Stagefright Fix, expected completion early October’ so it too could be on its way – let us know in the comments if you’ve received it. The only change for Optus is that they have no updates listed for the Note Edge.
If you’ve received the update, let us know your thoughts and run a Stagefright check to see if it’s fixed all the issues.
