Last Monday the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 finally received an update to Lollipop on T-Mobile’s network, about a week later than Sprint and AT&T. Now the Uncarrier is rolling out the same update to the Note 4’s curved brother, the Note Edge. Just as we saw with the Note 4, the new build bumps the software up to Android 5.0.1. The update itself is a massive 1.84GB, so you might want to wait until you’re on a Wi-Fi connection before downloading.

So what should you expect from the update? Just as we’ve seen with all other Samsung Lollipop updates, you’ll get changes like Smart Lock, priority notifications, an improved lockscreen and plenty of other tweaks.

While the update is rolling out now, don’t be surprised if it takes at least a few days (or longer) before it hits your device. For those that don’t want to wait any longer than they have to, you might also want to check Samsung Kies to see if you can snag the update from their instead.
