Is Samsung hinting at a quick update to Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4?

That the Galaxy Note 4 will get an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, and will be among the first Samsung phones to do so, is something that’s set in stone. But could Samsung be working on updating the Note 4 to Lollipop much faster than it has pushed out major updates in the past? The company has tweeted about the Galaxy Note 4’s Quad HD display, and the tweet shows an image of lollipops on the phone’s screen. Now, Samsung could simply have used this image because of the excitement around Android 5.0 at the moment (thanks to its very recent official announcement), but it could also be a hint that the update will arrive sooner rather than later.

We exclusively revealed earlier that Samsung is aiming for a late November/early December release for the update, and the company is already testing the latest version of the OS on the Galaxy S5, something we gave you a peek at recently. Samsung’s tweet is a good indication that that time frame could indeed be correct, though as always, we would caution against getting too excited, especially given how major an update Android Lollipop is.

What do you think? Is that tweet just a marketing gimmick, or could be hinting at something we will all await impatiently over the next couple of months?
