Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge to skip Android 5.0.0, rumors claim

Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge to skip Android 5.0.0, rumors claim
Ah, Android Lollipop – one of the biggest updates since Google's OS was born. Naturally, after its release in October, all manufacturers are racing to update at least their flagship to the new system – an important move, if cellphone makers wish to show their customers that their devices are future-proof, ergo – worth investing in.

Samsung, being among one of those manufacturers, has already started rolling out updates for its Galaxy S5 flagship, and solid leaks point to the Galaxy Note 3, Note 4, Note Edge, and Galaxy S4 all being in line for the Android 5.0 update. We've also seen some videos, showcasing unfinished TouchWiz builds on the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, Note 3, and Note 4.

Now we hear that Samsung is already working on Android 5.0.1 updates for the Note 4 and Note Edge, which most probably means that the two phablets will skip the 5.0.0 update. The rumor comes from SamMobile, which is generally pretty reliable when it comes to Samsung leaks.

No cause for alarm yet, though, as this will probably have minimum impact on the updates' rollout schedules. Latest rumors talk about the Note Edge and Galaxy Alpha getting Lollipop some time in February, and we'd wager that this is when the Note 4 should be getting it, too.

Are you anxious to see Lollipop TouchWiz? We sure are curious to see how much Material Design Samsung decides to intertwine with its own interface.
