Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lollipop leak shown off on video

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Lollipop leak

By now, it’s no secret that Samsung has been working on Lollipop for its recent devices. We’ve already seen a few older Samsung devices running the new operating system, but now it’s the Galaxy Note 3′s turn. The year-old device still has plenty of life in it, and SamMobile is showing off a new build of Lollipop for it.

With Lollipop comes a somewhat new aesthetic and some fresh new animations. Samsung’s styling has long been vaguely similar to Material design, with the bright colors and fairly flat look. But now it’s upgraded to Material styling, and it looks pretty nice, despite not being anywhere close to AOSP. And the addition of all the fancy new animations is a nice touch and something I’m excited for.

Of course, with Lollipop come massive changes below the skin. A new camera API, tons of new features and a complete redesign of many staples of Android-like notifications. This build isn’t downloadable at this point, but it’s great to see what it’ll look like and how close to finished it is. We can’t wait until it’s released to the public; it looks pretty close!

    Maybe I’ll just hold on to my note till the end of the year and see what sammy has brewing

      Same, i’m going to wait until January, considering how they’ve been with updates, i’m not going to get the Note 4 but instead either go to the oh-so-hated iPhone 6 Plus or Nexus 6

    Who told Samsung lime green and teal go together? It looks like someone puked on the screen after eating Fruity Pebbles.

      While that statement is hilarious, I think it looks pretty good.

    Hopefully it doesn’t take so damn long on T-mobile. I’m still waiting for the 4.4.4 update.

  • BlazeHN

    My Note 3 is still stuck on 4.4.2 but I really hope to get this soon.

    I see Download Booster there, (something the Galaxy S5 have but Note 3 doesn’t) so maybe we could see ultra power saving mode on this build? That would be sooooooooooo good.

      How’s your multi-window on 4.4.2? I had downgrade back to 4.3 cause it’s so much smoother there.

      • BlazeHN

        Dude, on 4.4.2 I hate that the little blue ball that controls the multi window is gone when you first open a 2nd window, and you have to hold the back button for a while to make it appears, very annoying.

  • Michael Forster

    Hurry up and give us Android 5.0 on the International N9005, I’m not even excited for it, considering how pathetic they’ve been with updates in the past. I expect it as compensation for such a costly day 1 purchase.

    Dear Samsung, please stop with the quick settings ribbon. There is no need :’(
