While Galaxy Note 4 owners continue to wait for their Android 5.0 Lollipop update, it is already reaching the Galaxy Note 3 in numerous markets. The update is now reaching handsets in India, just hours after rolling out to users on T-Mobile in the U.S.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Specs, Apps, News & Reviews
In a move that is going to disappoint many Galaxy Note 4 owners, Samsung has started rolling out the Lollipop update for its 2013 flagship phablet — the Galaxy Note 3.
Apparently last week, a lucky Galaxy Note 3 user received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on his handset. In all probability, there was some goof up on Samsung’s part that led to the user receiving the update on his phablet.
Samsung has officially confirmed that the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update is now rolling out to the Galaxy Note 3 under AT&T’s umbrella.
The Galaxy S5 already had its time in front of the camera running a version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, and now it’s the Galaxy Note 3’s time to shine.
Apple has always been praised for the build quality of its devices while Samsung has been criticized for it. The latter is known to use cheap plastic as the preferred material for its devices, which lends them a very poor in-hand feel.
Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 4, its flagship phablet for the second half of the year. Compared to the previous Note devices, the Note 4 packs in some major hardware improvements including a Quad HD Display and a 16MP rear camera with OIS.
The Galaxy Note 3 packs a boatload of software features, almost so many that you would think it would be impossible for Samsung to introduce newer ones with a newer flagship. However, that’s exactly what the company did with the Galaxy S5, and today, some of the new features of the device are making their way to the Galaxy Note 3 through a software update.
Ever since T-Mobile kicked off their Uncarrier initiatives, it’s become normal to see companies follow suit in their own ways. Now that the Magenta carrier is offering a “Test Drive” of their network for seven days, it should have been expected that some companies would do the same thing.
On June 18, T-Mobile announced their latest Uncarrier movement, in which part of that announcement centered around the launch of VoLTE markets. The new network had support from LG’s G Flex courtesy of an update to the device late in May, and now a pair of Samsung-branded handsets have joined the ranks.
