Android 5.1.1 running on Galaxy Note 4 in benchmarks; could be 64-bit optimized
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is in line for an Android 5.1.1 update, according to a report on the matter. The phablet, which will make way for the Galaxy Note 5 in a couple of months' time, took what seemed like an age to get Android 5.0 Lollipop, but according to SamMobile, testing for Android 5.1.1 is now under way. 

The Samsung-focused blog has received AnTuTu benchmarks showing Android 5.1.1 running on the Galaxy Note 4. Apparently, Samsung may also be testing a 64-bit build on the Note 4, though this is thought to be more of a hopeful bit of speculation than a probable eventuality. 

Neither the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge have yet received Android 5.1.1, and considering how important these two handsets are to Samsung, the constant wait for updates seems particularly tedious. Since owners of the S6 duo are still sitting on their hands in anticipation of the OTA, it's likely that the Galaxy Note 4 will not be seeing Android 5.1.1 until some point thereafter, which could be weeks or even months away.

Recalling how long it took for Android 5.0 to emerge for the Note 4, we shan't be getting our hopes up too much for now, particularly since 'unforeseen delays' and the Android platform seem to go hand-in-hand. But at least the testing stage appears to have commenced, and as and when we hear more, we'll have it covered here at PhoneArena.
