We have already provided you with exclusive previews of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on multiple Samsung devices, such as the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S4, today we have something similar to show you once again. Its Android 5.0 Lollipop on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

We have got our hands on an internal build of Lollipop for Galaxy Note 3. It shows us just how Samsung’s new TouchWiz UI looks on last year’s phablet flagship, while bringing support for all of the new features that come as part and parcel of Android 5.0 Lollipop. It looks pretty similar to Lollipop on the S4, and only the Settings and Multi-Window have been updated.

As far as the user interface is concerned there are new animations which are smoother than before, while the core green elements of Android Lollipop have been replaced with Samsung’s signature blue color. These design changes are pretty evident in the attached screenshots which also depict the new system-wide font, new icon colors in Settings, and an overall better look and feel.

The new Multi-Window feature from Galaxy Note 4 also makes an appearance and it’s here to stay, enhancing the multitasking feature on this handset.

Please note that for safety reasons we cannot leak this particular build right now, but that won’t stop us from giving all of you the first look at Lollipop on the Galaxy Note 3.
