Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005 Receives Lollipop OTA In Europe
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was supposed to be first in line for Android 5.0 after the current generation Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4, but interestingly enough it was overtook by the Galaxy S4 LTE-A (I9506).
It seems that with recent developments around Samsung and their own in-house Exynos SoC taking center stage in future devices instead of Qualcomm chips the Korean tech giant is naturally focusing on their own architecture and pushing updates along much faster on Exynos devices. This might just be a marketing trick but it is still a fact that Samsung seems to be taking care of that limited line of devices first and then moving on to Snapdragon.
It seems the long wait is finally over for Note 3 users as the package is already available on major carriers in the UK, Austria, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Hungary and a few other countries. You can keep a close eye on the OTA seeding progress here in the source link below.
If you are on a Snapdragon Note 3 be sure to check for that update package regularly as the Lollipop goodness is here.
