AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is going to be receiving a new version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the same one that was rolled out for the device in the Netherlands recently. This newer build of Android 5.0 gets rid of the much maligned "Interruptions" that replaced "Mute" on Google's OS. Muting the device now needs to be done by entering the Quick Settings Menu, instead of using the volume.At the moment, Sprint is the only company to have updated the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to Android Lollipop, so AT&T (and indeed the other carriers) can take advantage of their tardiness and get the newer build. While the newer version will scrap Interruptions, it will still bring with it the rest of Android 5.0 Lollipop's new features. Those include Material Design, Lock Screen Notifications, Project Volta, Quick Settings, and more. AT&T will also package HD calling capabilities into the update, in regions of the United States where the feature is supported. The carrier will also add Evernote and Amazon Shopping, two bloatware apps that are not a part of the usual Lollipop package. The upgrade is set to land soon, but there is still no official word from Samsung or AT&T as to when the exact date will be.
