After releasing Android 5.0 Lollipop updates for a variety of top flagship handsets in the past weeks, including the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3, Samsung has started rolling out the one official Lollipop ROM certain smartphone buyers were waiting for, the one made for the Galaxy Note 4.

FROM EARLIER: 2014’s sleekest Android phone finally starts getting Lollipop

Samsung’s best phablet yet — which also happens to still be a better phablet than Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus, though it might not be a better phone — can be upgraded to Lollipop now, although not all users will be able to do it immediately. As SamMobile reports, the first version of the handset to get Material Design and all the other Android 5.0 goodies is the SM-N910C model in Poland.

The update should be available to buyers of this specific model as an over-the-air download automatically. If that doesn’t happen, you should simply go to Settings, About phone, Software updates and tap the Check now option.

Considering the update has started rolling out in Poland, it’s likely other countries in the region will also get it soon.

Meanwhile, Galaxy Note 4 owners that aren’t yet able to install Android 5.0 on their handsets can check out the following video, in which the publication highlights the main features of Lollipop on Samsung’s 2014 phablet.
