Android 6.0 Marshmallow may be rolling out on the latest smartphones but that doesn’t mean T-Mobile has completely forgotten about the older models like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge. Before the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+, there’s the Note 4/Note Edge duo. The latter is actually the first phone by the South Korean tech giant with a curved edge screen. After months of waiting, the pair is getting another sweet update (sorry, no fluffy Marshmallow yet).
The first Android Lollipop update for the Note 4 was released back in April. From Android 5.0.1, it’s now jumping to Android 5.1.1. Perhaps this is just in preparation for Android 6.0 but we’ll have to wait for that maybe another six months from now or maybe never.
T-Mobile is slowly pushing out the update so if you own a Note 4 or Note Edge, wait for an over-the-air notification. You should be able to download the OTA update anytime soon. The new version brings several bug fixes, as well as, Advanced Messaging and Video features.
If you still haven’t received the OTA, you can do so manually or through the Samsung Kies software. Check update availability by going to your Settings and then About device and then Softtware update. Tap Ok to see the current version. If software is ready, simply click on Start to restart the phone and begin downloading the new Lollipop version.
