Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4, Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition getting Android 5.0.2


It looks like today is an update kind of day. After getting news of an impending BlackBerry Classic update and a new HTC One M9 update, two Samsung tablets are being updated, too.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition are both being updated to Android 5.0.2. The updates also include patches for Android’s Stagefright vulnerability.

The Tab 4’s update is 852.07MB, while the Note 10.1 2014 Edition’s is a bit beefier at 958.65MB. They’re both rolling out OTA starting today and will continue to be pushed through October 9. If you’d like to grab an update manually, head into Settings > About device > Software update.

With Android 6.0 looming, it’s kind of a bummer that these Samsung tablets are just not getting Android 5.0. These updates are better than nothing, though, and they do include patches to protect users from the Stagefright exploit to protect, too.

You can peruse the support pages for both updates at the T-Mobile links below.

    When is t mobile going to release the 5.1.1 update for the xperia z1s. And why aren’t they changing their update page to show what phones are getting the updates anymore..

      I dont know about the Xperia Z1, but the T-Mobile Xperia Z never got updated and is still on 4.3 jellybean. My brother in law bought one used and I recommended he use flash tool to force the update of the official Sony firmware. Good thing is that it doesn’t require root or an unlocked bootloader but you will lose features like WiFi calling in the process. He’s on 5.1.1 and I think T-Mobile is done releasing any updates to older Xperia phones.

    Still waiting on 4.4.1 for the OG Note 10.1

      I agree. What about the Original Note 10.1

  • gmo8492

    They had to stick it with a buggy version of lollipop, oh well.

      T-mo shot itself in the foot with this one. They could have gone right to 5.1.1. Def agree with you on that one.
