There have been numerous official and unofficial Android 5.0 Lollipop builds circulating for certain of the more popular Samsung devices, yet a notable omission was present - 2013's Samsung Galaxy Note 3
. For reasons unknown, some older Samsung handsets received their own takes of Google's newest OS before the S Pen-donning phablet.
Just last week, we heard that a single user in Vietnam
has received an official Lollipop update on his Exynos-powered Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900) over the air, which hinted us that Samsung is probably readying itself to roll out said firmware for the Galaxy Note 3. Well, it seems that said build has been intercepted and leaked online, now openly available for all those Android pundits that are brave enough to flash it themselves. If you belong to this type, head to the source link and carefully follow the instructions.
Have in mind that this leaked firmware is only available for the SM-N900 version of the Galaxy Note 3, which is powered by Samsung's own Exynos chipset. Thus, it's incompatible with the Qualcomm Snapdragon variation of the phablet. It's also important to mention that said build is a beta one, so bugs, issues, and problems are quite likely to be encountered.
