Android 5.0 spotted running on the Galaxy Note 3

Android Lollipop has started popping up all over the place, and now the latest Google OS has been spotted running on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Announced alongside the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 back in September, Android 5.0 has started its slow handset rollout in recent weeks.

With the Lollipop update currently restricted exclusively to the Nexus 5, the folks over at SamMobile have given us an early look at what the software will look like running on Samsung’s 2013 released phablet.

An “internal build”, the pre-release software shows how Android will work alongside Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on the precursor to the recently released Galaxy Note 4.

As well as introducing Google’s new Material design, enhanced Notification options and improved Lock Screen functionality, the Android 5.0 update – on the Note 3 – will add the Note 4’s recently introduced Multi-Window multitasking feature.

This addition is sure to appease existing Note 3 owners looking enviously at their Note 4 owning counterparts.

You can check out the full Note 3 Android 5.0 experience in the video below.
