AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 gets Android 5.0 update; Galaxy Note 3 Neo to receive it in Q2
The update brings the new Material Design, pull-down Quick Settings from any page, Lock Screen notifications, Project Volta, the 64-bit ART compiler, Priority mode that allows only certain notifications to reach you, the Smart Lock that secures your handset when paired with a tablet or wearable, and more. Since the update is being sent out OTA, it is going out in waves which means it might take days before you receive it. You can try to manually coax it out of your phone by going to Settings > General tab > About device > Software updates > Check for updates > follow remaining prompts.
In Europe, Samsung France sent out a tweet that certainly warmed the hearts of all Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo owners. Those sporting the phablet will receive Android 5.0.1 sometime during the second quarter of this year. Initial testing conducted by Samsung apparently revealed that the smaller-screened version of the Galaxy Note 3 is ready, willing, and able to run Android 5.0.1.
Thanks for the tip, Jarvis!
