Although its hardware is fully capable to run Marshmallow and it already got Android 5.1.1, this phablet on Verizon receives a new Lollipop update.

Verizon Wireless already updated the Galaxy Note 4 firmware to Android 5.1.1 and everyone was expecting them to move forward and release their first Android Marshmallow update for this device. Unfortunately, that did not happen yet, as the latest software update for this handset is still based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

The new update for Galaxy Note 4 phablets on Verizon Wireless brings the software version up to LMY47X.N910VVRU2BPA1, coming with these three highlights:

  • Android for Work support
  • Samsung Knox Platform upgrade
  • Removal of Amazon Appstore and Amazon Widgets

In addition to the above, the new Android 5.1.1-based firmware for Verizon's Galaxy Note 4 also packs the latest security patches and "has been tested to optimize device performance, resolve known issues." Unfortunately, there are no other details available about these minor tweaks and fixes. The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for this handset should come out in the first part of 2016 as well, but there is no official information about it yet.

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.
