Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 has arrived, but only for the LTE version. Users who have the Wi-Fi only version will have to wait a little longer to get their Lollipop fix.
SamMobile reports that Samsung has released the update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for its Note PRO 12.2, the biggest device in Samsung's line of tablets that comes a little too close to competition with 11-inch and 13-inch tablet/laptop hybrids. The update will bring the tablet's firmware to version P905XXUABOD7.
For now, it is only available to owners of the Note PRO 12.2 in Switzerland, where it should take a week before everyone in the country receives the update. Meanwhile, users in other regions can expect a month or so before Android Lollipop arrives on their tablets. It is quite a long wait, but at least we know the Note PRO 12.2 has started receiving the updates.
Samsung has yet to release the over-the-air update for the software, and if you're not overly familiar with the technical aspects of manually flashing a software update, it is best to wait for Samsung to roll out the OTAs. However, if you have done this before and know your way around the more complicated parts of using an electronic device, you can easily download Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 from your computer via Samsung Kies.
You can also download the firmware version for model number SM-P905, which is the Note PRO 12.2 from SamMobile's database and install Android 5.0.2 manually on your tablet.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is the latest device in Samsung's line of non-flagship tablets to receive the update to Android Lollipop. On Monday, T-Mobile rolled out Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to the Galaxy Tab S 10.5, following AT&T's move to upgrade the tablet to the same version of Android. The first mid-range tablet from Samsung to receive Android Lollipop is the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, which started receiving updates last week. The update for the Tab 4 10.1 is available for both the Wi-Fi and LTE versions and signaled the start of Android Lollipop updates for Samsung's non-flagship devices, which as we can see is ongoing.
