Although some variants of the Galaxy Note Edge have just recently received the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, Samsung’s curved screen phablet on Sprint’s network is now one big update ahead of the pack. Sprint has just started rolling out the Android 5.1 Lollipop update to the Galaxy Note Edge, which will bring the device’s software version up to N915PVPU4COFE.
Along with various bug fixes and software enhancements on Sprint’s side of things, this update brings a few user interface changes, factory reset protection, as well as a ton of performance improvements. Be sure to check out our “What’s new in Android 5.1 Lollipop” post for more details. Unfortunately Sprint’s changelog for this update isn’t very helpful, so we’re not entirely sure what changes are present in this new software version.
Android 5.1 may take a few days to make its way to your Note Edge, as is the case with most other software updates. If you’d like to check for the update manually, head to Settings>About device, then choose the “check for updates” button. And once you receive the update, be sure to let us know how you like it!
