Android 5.0.2 Lollipop rolling out for Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 LTE
Samsung's Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 LTE, which is the largest slate currently sold by the company, is finally beginning to see Android Lollipop 5.0.2. The update, which runs with the build number P905XXUABOD7, is said to be rolling to Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 LTE owners across Switzerland right now, and given the general pattern for Android software updates, should trickle out among the wider user base during the next few weeks.
The fragmented nature of Google's Android means that the rigmarole of waiting for an update almost never ceases. Unless you happen to own a Google Play Edition of a newer device running stock Android out of the box, it's easy to become stranded among the millions of device owners running older software, and as we look ahead to Google I/O and what's next, a large portion of Android users are still waiting for Lollipop's sweetness to grace their gadgets.
The Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 LTE (model SM-P905) first hit the scene at last January, and has since fought head-on with the likes of Microsoft's Surface Pro 3. Apple is also rumored to be coming through with a larger iPad later on this year as the apparent demand for larger mobile products intensifies.
If you own the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 LTE, though, then your wait is essentially over. Android Lollipop -- in this case, version 5.0.2 -- offers a number of bug fixes and feature enhancements over the preceding KitKat. The most obvious change pertains to the overall look and feel of the UI, which has been overhauled as part of the big G's Material Design initiative. While you've probably already had a taste of the new look through app updates -- most recently WhatsApp for Android -- those of you wielding the monstrous tablet can soon look forward to the full-on Lollipop experience with its numerous bells and whistles.
