Samsung Releases Android 5.1.1 Update for Galaxy Note Edge N915 in Russia

Galaxy Note Edge Android 5.1.1

Over the past several weeks, Samsung seeded the Android 5.1.1 update to Note 4. Now, it’s time for its curved brother to receive the new software update. According to Sammobile, the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is now being pushed to the Galaxy Note Edge owners in Russia.
The phone was already running Android 5.0, so all the Lollipop-specific goodies such as Material Design, multi-user support, lock screen notifications, Android Runtime, improved battery stats, tweaked notifications bar and quick settings, Screen Pinning, Smart Lock, or search functionality within the Settings app were already available to the users. The new Android 5.1.1 update for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is not a major update, but you would definitely want it installed on your phone as it arrives with bug fixes and performance boosts.
Just like any other software update, the new Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is being rolled out in phases. For the time being, only the users in Russia have reported that the OTA update is available, but more regions will get it over the next few weeks. As you may already know, when your phone becomes eligible to receive the update you should be able to see a system update message in the notifications bar. Tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions. You can also check for the update manually under Settings > About device > Software update > Check for software updates or via KIES.
You should also know that the new firmware update is only available for N915 Note Edge variant. Also, only the devices that run an official Android build are eligible to receive the update. The update has software version N915FXXU1COH2 and it’s recommended to download it using a WiFi network to avoid unwanted data charges. Also, have your battery charged above 50%, so your phone won’t shut down during the installation.
Are there any Russian Note Edge owners reading this? Have you guys received the update? Please let your fellow Note Edge owners know in comments.
