GALAXY NOTE 4 owners are reporting that Android 5.1.1 Lollipop has started arriving on their smartphone.
Users in Russia have revealed that their are now able to update their device to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, earlier than originally expected, with the update bringing with it 'security enhancements' and 'hardware tweaks.'
It's not yet clear when the update will arrive on UK Galaxy Note 4 handsets, but we've put the question to Samsung.
This news comes just days after Samsung revealed that owners of the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 smartphones in the UK won't be receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The news came in response to a tweet requesting information about the update.
@WesoLabeshnai We don't like to give out bad news Rohan but the Note 2 and the Galaxy S3 won't be receiving the Lollipop update.— Samsung Mobile UK (@SamsungMobileUK) July 4, 2015
The decision likely will come as a shock to some, as Samsung is set to release the Android Lollipop updates for both smartphones in Denmark and Poland.
Samsung did have some good news, however, confirming that the newer Galaxy Note 3 will be upgraded to Lollipop.
"We can confirm that the Note 3 shall be receiving the update. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as it is ready," the firm said.
However, Samsung was unable to say when this will be released. Clearly owners of the most apologetic Twitter account ever, the company added: "Unfortunately we would not be able to give you a time frame. We really do apologise for this.
With the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 stuck on Android 4.4 Kitkat, users of the ageing smartphones will have to decide whether it's time to upgrade to a newer model.
The report claimed that investors are wary of the handset's sales performance for the second quarter, and have lowered their expectations for the three-month period.
KTB Investment analyst Jin Sung-hye said: "As the smartphone market matures, the period of time that consumer demand for a high-end product lasts looks to have got shorter."
This followed a report that the Galaxy S6 hasn't been selling as well as its predecessors, taking longer to hit the 10 million sales milestone than the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4. µ
