Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Android 5.1.1 update: Note 4 owners will get it by July, other devices will follow


Samsung has already rolled out an Android 5.0 update for the Galaxy Note 4, but it shows no intention of stopping.

This is because, according to Sam Mobile, the South Korean tech giant is getting ready to roll out another update to Android 5.1.1, the latest version of the Lollipop mobile operating system.

This update, Sam Mobile’s sources said, will be released sometime next month.

However, the International Business Times noted that there is no specific date for the actual release of the update since the developers are still currently testing the update.

Christian Today noted that the popularity of the Note devices by Samsung might have influenced the tech giant’s decision to release an update for the upcoming Note 4.

In addition, Christian Today said, Samsung has turned its attention to developing an Android Lollipop update across the board instead of waiting for the recently announced Android M. The Note 4 will be the first Samsung device to receive the 5.1.1 update, with corresponding updates rolling out for other Samsung devices afterwards.

According to Gotta Be Mobile, the 5.1.1 update will unlock new capabilities for Note 4 users in addition to fixing known bugs in the previous Android 4.4.4 Kitkat OS in the device. One of these is the Guest Mode. The website said that the inclusion of the Guest Mode will allow owners of the Note 4, S6 and S6 Edge to set up guest profiles in order to safeguard the privacy of their music, photos and videos from other users.

Gotta Be Mobile added that the 5.1.1 update will feature improvements to the Note 4’s camera. The new camera app that will come with the update will allow users to tweak with exposure settings when taking pictures using the stock camera.

There might also be RAW image support and shutter speed control with the new update, a separate Sam Mobile article theorized.
