Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners on T-Mobile are in for some good news, as an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop is headed their way.

T-Mobile got the technical approval (TA) for the Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware and is ready to start the rollout, which means that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners on the carrier's wireless network in the U.S. should receive the notification soon. The update is rolling out over the air (OTA), so it may take a few days to reach all devices.

The news comes from T-Mobile product manager Des Smith, who announced that the carrier's version of the Galaxy Note 4 should receive the OTA notification for the upgrade as soon as next week.

"This just in!!! Technical Acceptance on #Note4 Lollipop software update achieved! Should start to rollout next week! Woot woot!" reads the manager's Twitter announcement on Friday, April 24.

The new Android 5.0 Lollipop update will bring a slew of neat features and improvements to the table, enhancing the overall experience and performance. Lollipop will bring along the much-touted Material Design with more fluid animations, 3D views and rich-colored themes, improved lock screen with shortcuts for Phone and Camera, a visually improved TouchWiz UI inspired by Material Design, a floating action button, smart lock, priority mode for notifications, battery optimization features, easy access to Chrome tabs from the Recent apps page, activation of "OK Google" voice command, and more.

As previously mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Android 5.0 Lollipop update on T-Mobile will start rolling out OTA next week, and not all users will get it at the same time. The update rollout is gradual, arriving in phases, so you might have to wait a few days to receive the notification.

On the other hand, if you don't want to sit idly by and wait for the update prompt, you can also manually check whether the update is available for your device. In order to do so, head over to your device's Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > Check for updates. If the firmware is ready, simply follow the on-screen instructions to download and install Android 5.0 Lollipop.

As always, make sure you're connected to a reliable Wi-Fi network and your device has plenty of battery life before proceeding with the update. Once you have installed Android 5.0 Lollipop on your T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 4, drop by our comment section below and tell us how it fares.
