Sprint Galaxy Note Edge gets Android 5.1 update
While some Samsung Galaxy Note Edge variants barely got their first Android 5.0 Lollipop update, these phablets on Sprint's network take a big step ahead and get their firmware updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop.
Unfortunately, the support page on Sprint.com does not reveal much about the changes that Android 5.1 Lollipop brings to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge phablets on the network. The update they released yesterday is the third one (not including the initial release), with the first two being based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The new firmware version is N915PVPU4COFE and it comes with "various bug fixes and enhancements" - most likely about the same as offered by the "pure" Android 5.1 Lollipop releases - Quick Settings and System Volume tweaks, Screen Pinning improvements, a few changes to the Contacts app, new animations, as well as multiple bug fixes and minor tweaks.
Since the update comes in stages, it needs several days to reach all Galaxy Note Edge handsets on Sprint. As usual, those anxious to get the new firmware faster can check manually for updates.
