The long-awaited Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Samsung's flagship phablet finally begins to roll out in Poland, but only for the Exynos variant using CSC XEO (Open Europe) firmware.

The first screenshots revealing Android Lollipop running on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 made it online back in December, so seeing this update finally starts to roll out is no surprise. Unfortunately, it looks like only a few users can get it for now, as Android 5.0 is only available for Galaxy Note 4 phablets in Poland, but it does not stop here. For now, only Polish users of SM-N910C handsets receive the OTA firmware update.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910C is the variant powered by the Exynos SoC and not even all these devices receive the update. According to GSMArena.com, only SM-N910C handsets loaded with CSC XEO (Open Europe) firmware can be updated via OTA right now. There is little doubt that Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Note 4 will get Lollipop soon, but there is no official date for that yet.

The new Polish OTA update for Galaxy Note 4 phablets is based on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. Various rumors claim Samsung delayed Lollipop for Note 4 in order to ensure Gear VR compatibility. As soon as this update goes global, we will get back to it.

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.
