    SamMobile has posted an exclusive video showing an early build of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Note 4. While nothing official has been given regarding a release date, current rumors point to a potential release as early as January (although that's likely to be for the unlocked international variant with carrier-branded updates after that).

    As expected, Touch Wiz is still present in full force, but some Material Design updates have been made in several parts of the UI.

    Yeah, still looks like they've got a lot of work to do ... Or should I say I HOPE they intend to work on it more.

    I'm hoping they fix the dialer/contact option where it asks to set a "default" or "just use once" when selecting a phone number from someone that has multiple numbers

    White white and more white. Not amoled friendly for those of us that like to have some battery juice left at the end of the day.
    I'm wondering if AT&T will use it to add even more bloatware to mine. I thought Verizon added a bunch of junk onto their phones but AT&T takes it to another level.
    As far as (the volume was very low so I might have heard wrong) Samsung bloatware not being updated, on my Note2 they did it through their app store after Verizon pushed their part so maybe they're doing it that way again.

    According to this article - Why the Galaxy Note 4 Still Doesn't Have Android 5.0 Lollipop - the release of Lollipop for the Note 4 has been delayed because Oculus is having issues with getting 5.0 to work correctly with the Gear VR software.

    If true (and it seems reasonable that it is), that's definitely a bummer since the vast majority of Note 4 users don't own a Gear VR.

    That's stellar news! Isn't that how it started with the S5? Here's hoping that VZW works with the same quickness that it did there when the update hits the states!

    Yep. Poland was the first to see Lollipop for the S5, and then it rolled out from there. It seems like the Note 4 update is reaching other countries beyond Poland more quickly than the S5 update did, so that's definitely a positive sign.

    I know it's just an update & I've seen the issues that s5 users have experienced with theirs, but I'm excited.

    I'm excited too. :)

    I was a bit dubious after seeing 5.0.1 on my Nexus 6, but now I can't wait.
