The unofficial update is only compatible with the Exynos-powered South Korean version of the phablet, but this means the international version should also get its Android 5.0 update soon.

During the last few weeks, various Samsung handsets got their Android 5.0 Lollipop updates or at least some beta version for them leaked online. Unfortunately, 2013 flagship phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 3 did not get the updated sweetness yet.

According to PhoneArena, a single user in Vietnam received the official Lollipop update over the air last week, so the international version may get the firmware soon as well. The user mentioned above uses the variant powered by Samsung's Exynos processor, namely the SM-N900 handset.

In the meantime, that Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the South Korean Galaxy Note 3 ended up on the notorious XDA forums, so anyone can easily download it. However, this firmware image is not compatible with the Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Note 3 and, since it appears to be still in beta stage, it may also pack various issues.

These being said, we can only hope to hear about the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 3 as soon as possible. We will get back to this topic once new info comes out, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
