Two more Samsung handsets are now getting Android 5.0 Lollipop software updates in the U.S. - the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 and the Sprint Galaxy Note 4.

The latest major version of Android has only reached roughly three percent of all Android devices until now, but Lollipop is nonetheless making its way to more devices as we speak. Carrier versions are typically not the first in line to receive new software versions, but an increasing number of devices are starting to get a taste of Lollipop on various carriers in the U.S.

The latest Samsung devices to get Android Lollipop are the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 and Sprint Galaxy Note 4, with both updates rolling out now over the air (OTA).

The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 4 update comes with build number N910PVPU1BOB7, updating the OS to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update started rolling out on Thursday, March 5, according to the support page. The update will bring the much-touted visual changes Lollipop has to offer, as well as the slew of features and enhancements such as improved security, enhanced notifications, better battery optimization, Wi-Fi calling enhancements, and more.

The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 3 update, meanwhile, carries build number N900TUVUFOB5, bringing all of the neat changes and improvements as the Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4. Moreover, Samsung's website also notes a number of specific changes for the Galaxy Note 3 such as Wi-Fi calling experience, resolved Wi-Fi calling one way audio, and resolved IPv6 email setup, in addition to the OS upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop. The T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 Lollipop update, however, still appears in the manufacturer development stage on T-Mobile's support pages.

As always with OTA updates, keep in mind that the process is gradual and it may take a while to reach all devices. At the same time, the update package is quite hefty and it's best to update over Wi-Fi so as not to incur data charges. Lastly, make sure you have plenty of battery before you hit the update button so everything goes smoothly, without interruptions.
