Samsung rolls out hefty maintenance update for the Galaxy Note 4 in Europe

As the Galaxy Note 4 approaches the end of its two year support period, Samsung has started rolling out what’s believed to be one of its final maintenance updates for the device in Europe. The upgrade — firmware version XXS1DPJ3 — weighs in at a hefty 350 MB and transports a flurry of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations to the handset, in addition to all of the patches included in this month’s security release.

The full changelog can be seen below:

  • Battery optimization
  • Improved performance through efficient memory management
  • Stability Improvements
  • Bug Fixes
  • Improved core features
  • Android Security Patch (October 1)

As you’d expect, the OTA is being pushed out to the Galaxy Note 4 in stages across multiple different regions in the continent. If you’d like to see if it’s ready for your device, you can do so by heading into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to upgrade. It’s worth noting, however, that you’ll need to have at least 50% of battery and be connected to a reliable, secure Wi-Fi network to receive the alert.

I have a T Mobile Galaxy note 4 and would like to upgrade to Android Marshmallow but the only version that sees to be available to me is version 5.0.1.My Galaxy 4 model number version is N910TTMB2DOK2. Any advice anybody? Help!

5.1.1 works flawlessly, if T mobile would release it with the latest security updates you would be good. The permissions on 6.0.1 are nice. But 5.1.1 works perfectly. Did you get updates for S – Note they are released Thur Galaxy apps, I don’t know if you need 6 to get them. I don’t know if your bootloader is locked like Verizon did mine. Root could be a option but it trips Knox, then the pay apps don’t work.

Given that the Galaxy Note is expected to be 7 out of previous Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 5 and Note 4 has better support for the phone to bring Android 7. We ask Samsung to think it over and obtain an appropriate decision. As you know, Apple’s 5 year full support to be provided by their devices. Thanks

This blows! I was hoping that the Note 4 would get Nougat at least! >:(

A Note 4 redue with a new processor and motherboard would be the only way to get 64 bit. Proper monthly security updates would probably be the best incentive we can get to wait for the Note 8. But can they get the US Carriers on board. Even the Pixel has the disclaimer, if you don’t buy the unlocked model you are at the mercy of Verizon.

64bit support isn’t a necessity for Nougat seeing as the Nexus 6 is getting it and it shares the same processor as some of the note 4, the majority of which went to the European market I believe. To compensate for the lack of Note 5 in Europe and the Note 7 Snafu they ought to at least release Nougat and support the Note 4 for the Snapdragon variant if they can’t get it to work with their own chips.

7.1 would be nice, but security updates are more important than the OS. A worthy replacement for the Note 4 and earlier great devices must also include them. A requested upgrade to 64 bit still is impossible for our Snapdragon.

64 bit was a reply to a comment requesting it to be added. If Samsung would invest the time the could provide better support. Money spent on customer satisfaction for the purpose of their retention is hard to measure! That is why it is often forgotten. Too many models to properly support, instead of continuing to sell a device longer at a reduced price can be a support headache!

Theme support is the only thing that’s stopping me from getting a N4

Being the latest available Note mobile in Europe, Samsung should reissue a Note 4S with updated processor, smaller bezels and new fingerprint scanner with Android 7 plus newest software and they would
be almost forgiven in Europe.
Get going Samsung !!!!

Pathetic level of support for such an expensive device.

In view of the fact the Note 4 is the last Note that has been available in Europe the very least they could do is provide an extra year of support for those users that need a Note and can’t get one yet again. Hopefully next time they will listen to what Note users want – including a replaceable battery and a flat more scratch resistance screen option. Note’s or whatever they are called should not be S series phones – its for a different purpose.

Yes, in a Industrial, construction or maintenance environment the flat screen is much easier to protect. And as SamMobiles own poll showed, the IR Blaster is used by most people and is much easier than hunting for remotes when you have a presentation to give. The battery and remote charging case keep you mobile under a use cycle that will quickly use up the number of recharge cycles a single battery provides.

Indeed. Samsung seem to have lost sight of why they originally introduced the Note series and what it was for the last couple of years. A non replaceable battery which takes half and hour with heat to unglue the case to get at it is no good at all for a phone that is used intensively. A glass back is also fragile and I imagine not a good conductor of heat to the outside. It is asking for trouble really when you think about it. I hope we will see a move back to user replaceable batteries.

What about Android 6.0.1 for the Galaxy Alpha?!?

My Note 4 and 2 S 5s that are still under contract are Samsung’s opportunitie to retain customers by providing proper security support at a minimum. Note 5 and 7 are less usable for work due to the Battery. Considering the last date Samsung has allowed a device to be sold on a 2 year contract should be the law. The S 5 is still being sold on a contract. Google’s policy is 2 years OS upgrade and 3 years for security every Month! Verizon and the other Carriers should also have to comply with this timely update policy. Will… Read more »

How about you slap another year of support on that for the Note 7.
