If you’re lucky enough to be one of the few who already have the handset in their possession, you should be able to install the over-the-air (OTA) update right away by heading into Settings, followed by About Device, then tap the Download Updates Manually button. Alternatively, if it’s not ready for your device just yet, you can grab a copy of the software package from our comprehensive firmware database and manually flash it onto your device.
