Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge

Android Lollipop is continuing its parade across the various flagship devices of yesteryear, and today it looks like T-Mobile is rolling out the update to its Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (via Android Police). As per the company’s support website:

Beginning May 4, the Samsung Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will receive a software update to Android version 5.0.2/baseband version N915TUVU1COD7. This update provides the Android 5.0 ‘Lollipop’ and enables Wi-Fi passport. This update is available to download over W-Fi or via Samsung Kies.

Rather than the more recent Android 5.1 and 5.1.1 builds that have been rolling out to Nexus devices lately, this update is based on Android 5.0.2. On top of bringing Android Lollipop (and all the goodies that it offers), T-Mobile also says that this update enables Wi-Fi passport.

The update is beginning its rollout today, but if you’re impatient you can use Samsung’s Kies software to get it right now. Otherwise, make sure your phone has at least 1100 MB of free space, a WiFi connection, and at least 50% battery life.
