Samsung starts distributing a much-needed maintenance update for the Galaxy Note Edge in Europe

Samsung has today started rolling out a beefy maintenance update for the unlocked model of the Galaxy Note Edge in Europe. The upgrade is identical to the release that the firm began distributing for the Galaxy Note 4 in the region a little over a week ago, bringing a flurry of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations to the handset, as well as all of the fixes included in the October security patch.

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)

It’s worth noting that this is likely the last maintenance update that the Galaxy Note Edge will receive as it’s now approaching the end of the two year support period that Samsung promises to upgrade devices for. If you own a Galaxy Note Edge and would like to see if the OTA — firmware version XXU1DPJ1 — is ready for your handset, head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually

I’m on …2CPG2 with my Verizon model … that update came out not long ago so if there’s one more coming that fixes the constant reboot to lockscreen … I can’t complain. Two years … this phone has really seemed like it could last for so much longer, and that it never saw its full potential. But that’s phones, I guess. My MacBook is from 2012 and it’s still going strong … Mobile tech devices aren’t designed to last these days, but they sure do cost as though they are.

Note Edge was a limited edition phone. It was and will be the hottest, sexiest phone ever.

Only 1 Note for us in UK- the Note 4.
Sammy should at least give us another year, minimum.

Samsung should consider providing firmware updates for the Note 4 and Note Edge for an additional year. Seeing as the Note 7 was recalled.

Yeah. I’ve got mine on Note 4 recently. My only hope is that as Note 7 got retired, the last 2 Note models are 4 & 5. So maybe Samsung will continue to update the last 2 models instead of the 2 years it did before. After all, before this 2 years = 2 model versions.
It would be a welcomed relief for us, Note fans, who doesn’t want to by anything with a smaller display.

And here in Europe the Note4 remains the de facto current model. I don’t see how Samsung can stop support when it has not offered a replacement model yet.
