Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Receives First Update That Improves Battery Life

Samsung’s new flagship smartphone has only been officially released in several countries, but the South Korean company plans to introduce the Galaxy Note 4 in a lot more regions by the end of the month.

Although the handset is not yet available in major markets, such as the United States and the UK, Samsung has already launched an update for the phablet. This is the first software update for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and it’s currently being pushed in all countries where the smartphone is now available for purchase. However, as the device goes on sale in additional countries, the update will be available for download in more regions. According to appdated, the new software update (firmware XXU1ANJ4) is expected to improve the Galaxy Note 4’s battery life. Given the fact that the rollout of the update has just kicked off, it’s hard to say whether or not it really improves the battery consumption efficiency of the Galaxy Note 4. Only time will tell if Samsung managed to enhance the phablet’s battery life.

Also, the update doesn’t really say by how much the smartphone’s battery life should improve after installing it, which is why additional testing is needed to determine how effective Samsung’s changes really are.

The update brings some stability and performance improvements as well

But this is not the only improvement included in this update, which is expected to be around 35MB in size. The changelog also mentions Galaxy Note 4 owners should also get some stability and performance improvements, though no additional details on any of these have been provided yet. We expect Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to be among the first smartphone launched by the South Korean company to receive the highly anticipated Android L update. Google has been confirmed to launch the new version of its mobile platform this month, which means it will take a few months until Samsung is capable of delivering a working Android L update for the Galaxy Note 4.

Until then, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be able to download this small update that brings a major improvement, better battery life, by going to Settings / About phone / Software Update. Keep in mind that the update is rolled out in stages, so if you are not notified on availability and it doesn’t show in the Settings menu either, then you should try again later. Customers who will purchase the Galaxy Note 4 in the following weeks should have access to the update right out of the box, so make sure you check for it if you want better battery life for your smartphone.
