AT&T Galaxy Note 3 gets Android 5.0 update
Samsung launched the 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3 phablet back in September 2013, loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Until recently, the latest firmware available for Galaxy Note 3 owners on AT&T was Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Yesterday, AT&T finally released the long-awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop update for their users.
The official update page reveals the following details for this update:
- Android version: 5.0
- Baseband Version: N900AUCUEOC1
- Kernel Version: 3.4.0-4335446
- Build Number: LRX21V.N900AUCUEOC1
- Upgrade file size: KK MR (NC1) = 1197.08MB or 4.4.4 MR (NJ5) = 1054.72MB
Since Android 5.0 Lollipop is no longer the latest update available from Google, the highlights of this update are nothing new - Material Design UI enhancements that affect animations and the user interface overall, battery saving features, Smart Lock, as well as multiple minor fixes and tweaks.
The update is rolling out in stages, so users who did not receive the update notification yet should be patient, but they could also try to run a manual check and initiate the firmware update themselves (Settings > General tab > About device > Software updates > Check for updates).
