Samsung has made significant progress recently in rolling out the new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS update to phablets in its Galaxy Note series. Here's a roundup of devices and carriers that have implemented the update so far, and which are expected.
Galaxy Note 4: Owners of Samsung's latest flagship phablet in the U.S. are still waiting for the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop for their devices. After an earlier report that the Note 4 Lollipop release would be delayed due to coding issues, significant progress has been made this month in other territories. Poland, South Korea and Germany have already seen Note 4 Lollipop updates, while French and Canadian carriers have confirmed updates in the near future, boding well for a U.S. release shortly.
Galaxy Note 3: While no U.S. Android 5.0 Lollipop update is currently available for the Note 3, international variants in the United Kingdom, Hungary, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Romania have already received the update. One U.S. carrier, Sprint, has actually confirmed the update unintentionally via a document posted on its website.
Galaxy Note 2: Initially, it looked as if the Galaxy Note 2 might be bypassing the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The device is well over two years old, and Samsung did not include it on its confirmed list for the update. Note 2 users have reason to hope, however, as regional arms of Samsung in both Denmark and Poland have both confirmed the existence of a Note 2 Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their territories. Regional arms have spread bad information in the past however, so Note 2 users will just have to wait and see.
Galaxy Note Edge: So far, the Galaxy Note Edge, the unique and curved display phablet launched alongside the Galaxy Note 4 last September, has received an Android 5.0 Lollipop update in just one region, Australia. Several days ago, the release was surprisingly pushed through to Australian devices with a welcome added feature, a mute function previously unavailable. While no other territories or carriers have confirmed Note Edge updates yet, the Australian release indicates they should be coming soon.
