There are a number of official and unofficial Android 5.0 (Lollipop) builds for the more popular Samsung-made devices that have been popping up all over the internet. However, one device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, hasn’t seemed to be getting any Lollipop love. Recently, however, older high-end Samsung devices have been getting Lollipop treatment before their successors.
Last week an owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 in Vietnam reported to have received the Lollipop OTA (over the air) update for his device. His device is the variant that sports a Samsung-made Exynos CPU under the hood, model number SM-N900. This suggested that the Korean tech giant would soon roll out the device to its last year’s phablet. XDA, it seems, has gotten its hands on the beta version of Lollipop for the Note 3, and has made the build available for anyone who has experience flashing their devices. If you’re willing to brave the build, hit the link provided and follow the instructions.
Again, this is for the Exynos version of the Note 3 and not the Qualcomm Snapdragon version. Also note that this is a beta build, so expect a number of bugs to come with the build.
