Samsung Galaxy Note Edge from Sprint gets OTA to Android 5.1

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge from Sprint is getting an OTA to Lollipop today. The device has not been forgotten (yet) and it is joining many others in the Android 5.1 club. The device was already running on 5.0, so this will not be a monumental change, but a good one nonetheless.

Sprint does not provide a very helpful changelog, but it does mention the Android 5.1 update and some bug fixes. This is supposed to include the known fixes other devices have already received. The OTA brings Galaxy Note Edge to version N915PVPU4COFE, and it may take a few days for it to reach all devices.


Keep in mind that, if you made any software changes to your curved edge Samsung device, the update will fail and you will need to bring your device to a stock Android version to be able to properly update.

LG Spirit 4G – the mid-range curved smartphone from LG

LG G Flex 2 is not the only new device of 2015 from the South Koreans as LG Spirit 4G enters the market. The device was just announced and it also has a curved screen with Lollipop OS at launch. And that’s about all the excitement about it…well, maybe the mid-range position will be endearing to many possible customers too.

LG Spirit 4G does not mention flexibility, which means it will likely not have the healing and bending power G Flex 2 has. The 4.7” 720p IPS LCD screen is standard and is covered by curved glass covers. Under the chassis you will find a Snapdragon 410 with 1 GB of RAM and a 8MP camera with a 2100 mAh battery. It will run on the updated Android 5.0.1 with LG’s skin.


The device remains an LG branded product with the rear-placed buttons and a clear screen. It is rather thick at 9.95mm even if it has the smallish battery. There is no known price for the Spirit 4G as of yet and it will be first launched in the UK.
