    International Galaxy Note 4 getting the Android 5.1.1 update in Poland

    Firmware

    Following Sprint's release of the long-awaited update for the Galaxy Note 4, it looks like Samsung has started rolling out Android 5.1.1 for the unlocked variant of the phablet in Poland (for the SM-N910C model.) Users on XDA are reporting that the update is making its way to their Note 4's over the air, and a full version of the firmware has also been posted online. We're not seeing anything on Kies just yet, but this update should be the real deal and be followed by a rollout for other regions in the coming weeks.

    Android 5.1.1 brings behind-the-scenes changes to performance, battery life and the overall user experience, and it should also include a fix for the Stagefright vulnerability unless Samsung is planning to patch that with an additional update. You can go into the Settings » About device » Software updates menu and hit that Update now button to see if the OTA is available, or just wait for a notification to pop up on its own. You could also try flashing the firmware available at the source link; we're not completely sure it's the final version of the update, but the comments suggest it works properly and doesn't have any issues.

    Update: We've seen a lot of comments on XDA saying that the update doesn't bring 64-bit support, so we thought we should point out that 64-bit support will never come to the Note 4 since only the Exynos version has 64-bit capabilities. The Snapdragon 805 used in the other variant is a 32-bit processor, and Samsung is unlikely to offer 64-bit support to only one section of Note 4 users and not the other.

    Ah, the Galaxy Note 4. It's perhaps the last “true” Note flagship if you ask some of the diehard fans, and for good reason, too. It was the last Note to come with a removable battery or an IR blaster. When the Galaxy Note 5 came along, the Note 4 was also temporarily the last […]
