Samsung Galaxy Note 3 receives Android 5.0 Lollipop update
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 LTE started getting Android 5.0 Lollipop, according to Sam Mobile. The model receiving the update is the Galaxy Note N9005.
The Galaxy Note 3 powered by a Snapdragon 800 chipset is previously getting the update, which is not amazing since the N9000 version got the operating system upgrade previously. Users of the two Galaxy Note 3 variants will get notifications that they need to tap to download the update over-the-air. If no notification is customary, users can check the smart phone manually on the Settings > General > About phone > Software updates > Check for software updates. Galaxy Note 3 users can also update their devices via KIES by simply plugging the device and launching the KIES.
The Android 5.0 Lollipop OS update is over 600 MB in size. Google claimed that it is Android’s major and most important operating system update, and it packs the new Material Design user interface as well as safety and performance improvements. Specially, new added and improved features are heading to updated devices like Smart Lock, Screen Pinning, Android Runtime, and multi-user support for phones, and dynamic status bar, redesigned notifications bar, card-based interface for the Recents screen, with others. On top of the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, the Galaxy Note 3 will come with Samsung’s exclusive Touch Wiz UI.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is also established to get the Lollipop OS. The update is reportedly rolling out in Poland first. However, there is no commitment on the actual release date and there is a option that the plans will be shelved should any obscurity arise. The Galaxy Note 2 was released in 2012 and is over two years old, prompting some people to doubt if it will receive Android 5.0.
Users are recommended to have at least 50 percent battery capacity and strong Wi-Fi connection if they decide to update to Lollipop.
