Report: AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to receive new version of Android 5.0
In the U.S., only the Sprint branded version of the Galaxy Note 4 has been Lollipopped so far (to Android 5.0.1), although the phone received the original variant of the update. Android 5.0 brings with it the new Material Design, Lock Screen notifications, Quick Settings pull down menu from any screen, Project Volta for extended battery life, the 64-bit ART compiler that opens apps quicker, a new "Recent Apps" menu, and more. In addition, the update brings HD Calling to the carrier's version of the Galaxy Note 4 in some regions of the country.
In addition, the new Android build will bring some bloatware with it. Reportedly Evernote, and Amazon Shopping are being added to the Galaxy Note 4 with the update. Mobile payment service Softcard also was mentioned in the report as being one of the bloatware apps included with the new OS build, but Google recently purchased Softcard's technology and IP. While the Softcard app can be used for a short time, eventually Google will close the service and migrate users to Google Wallet.
While the update is said to be coming soon, there is no precise date yet when to expect AT&T to start disseminating it.
Thanks for the tip!
