Sprint is now in the process of pushing out the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop for both the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note Edge. This follows last month’s software release for the Galaxy Note 4 units sold by this particular carrier.
In both cases, the updates are rolling out over-the-air, so your handset should notify you when it’s ready to download and install. As software updates are rolled out in stages, it may take a few days before they reach all the devices out there.
After applying the update, your Galaxy Note 3 for Sprint will run build N900PVPUEOC5. For this smartphone, the upgrade to Lollipop is all you’ll see. In the case of the Galaxy Note Edge, however, some unnamed Wi-Fi calling enhancements are bundled too, along with “factory reset protection”. If you own a Note Edge, the build you’ll be running after applying the update is N915PVPU0AOC8.
