Verizon Galaxy Note 4 gets Android 5.1.1

Although Android Marshmallow has been around for a while, this phablet only gets a new Lollipop update for now.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have been using Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for a while now, although they are all waiting for Android Marshmallow to reach their devices. Verizon Wireless finally releases Android 5.1.1 for these devices as well, and their update does not come with any surprises.

This Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for Galaxy Note 4 phablets on Verizon Wireless carries build number N910VVRU2BOK3 and brings three major changes - Android for Work support, removal of pre-loaded Amazon Appstore and Amazon Widgets, as well as upgrades to the Samsung Knox Platform. Obviously, the new firmware should also include the "regular" Android 5.1.1 changes, such as improved stability, various security fixes, and battery-related improvements.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow should hit this device before the second half of 2016 if everything goes well. According to multiple sources, Samsung is already testing this update, but it will surely take a while until it reaches handsets on Verizon.

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.
