There’s just no stopping Samsung when it comes to updating devices to Android 5.0.
It might have been berated for being slow with software updates in the past, but it looks like that’s an accusation Samsung won’t have to face from now on. The Korean manufacturer has already updated a slew of its devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop in record time, and it is now adding yet another device to the mix.
This time it’s the Galaxy Note Edge, the device that is the forebearer to the Edge display that will soon be seen on the Galaxy S6 in an even more advanced form. The update is currently rolling out in Australia and should be making its way to other regions in the coming weeks. In terms of features, the update will bring the usual goodies, including the new Material Design-inspired UX, an improved notification system, and enhanced performance and battery life.
Samsung has probably also enhanced functionality of the secondary Edge screen, functionality that will not be seen on any other device from the company. The update is currently rolling out over the air as a 1000MB+ package and through Samsung’s PC suite application. As always, there’s no telling when US carriers will start pushing the upgrade, though it probably won’t be long considering how quickly even stateside carriers have been moving when it comes to the fifth major version of Android.
