I wonder what N will be called? Nuggat? Not many sweet stuff begining with N Mystery? Does anyone else know?
Since note series came out i bought note 1. Went straight to note 3 and then last december note edge. I know some ppl do change phone every two yrs. Note 5 i didnt like because no sd card or non removable battery. There is supposed to be note edge 2 coming out i was reading somewhere. But ive note 3 on 5.0 and have had no problems at all with it. Some other users do. But i think its still good 2rs on this march. So i dont have a problem with it on 5.0. But if a phone is still in good condion looks wise and performing good i wont stop using it. But note edge has better specs compared to note 3. So i keep my note 3 as backup. My old note 1 is lying in a drawer. Not a scratch on it and running pretty good for the age of it. Altho not as good as note 3 and note edge. Its stuck on 4.1.2 lol.

AnonD-485965, 07 May 2016Can you pls confirm whether it would be receiving android N update as well..I honestly dont know to tell you the truth. But if i can get on sam live chat i would ask them. Sometimes its not working. I have to end up sending email to them. Takes 3 days to receive word back from samsung.

After the 1st update, then it again prompt me to update (again!)
Not sure, then i did the update.
There is one update on security patch, Android security patch level, dated 2015-12-01
The other update is for v5.1.1

Samsung have already did update from v4 to v5 to v6 which is good enough.
Who knows that Samsung have plan for Note Edge 2 which would replace Note Edge.
There is a need to understand on what & how software update could improved on 'ancient' electronic components.
For example, for Note 3, the v4.3 (original) can be upgradable to v5.0. There is no mentioned on Note 3 to update to v6.
So Note Edge able to update to v6 is the best and final version, maybe.
This do not means that after >2 years you cannot use the phone.
Even some are still using Note 2 after >4 years and no update to v5.
There is a limit.

If its not receiving then definitely we would be saying its an outdated phone in terms of s/w and ya we can flash some custom roms and upgrade but im saying about official N update.......
I was on sam live chat 2 or 3 months ago and i asked will note edge receive 6.0 and they said yes. Thats what they told me.

This is the very 1st Note Edge, as others may be trying to copy, yet.
quote "Note edge is outdated in terms of software".
Then why do Samsung is releasing Android version 6.
Not many other models, of about the same age, are yet to release or even mentioned about updating to Android version 6. The word "out dated" is determine by each individual opinion, not official statement.
AnonD-531342, 03 May 2016But my phone is unlocked so it should come right awayMine was bought sim fee ( unlocked to) . But i keep checking OTA for any updates and it keeps saying latest updates installed. Week ago i received an update. Think it was either stability update or for security patch. Im thinking maybe is preperation for 6.0. But might not be. I dont know.
Think i might have to stay with note edge as i like to have spare batteries just incase i run out. I wish they would bring removable batteries back in thier new models. I was looking forward to note 6. It will come with sd support which is good. But non removable battery. And i read it cost alot to have battery replaced.

I wonder will samsung be staying with non removable batteries? Like note 6. Is it going to be the norm with non removeable batteries in the funture?

If say, every day required charging, this means by 500 days,
Then battery would able to recharge >500 times, but the battery power may be lacking. So give and take, it would be about 2 years or longer.
Manufacturer may not like to extend, as it would eat into their profit and survival.
Phone Manufacturer themselves are business that required profit.

AnonD-531936, 30 Apr 2016Hi people, how i can get marshmallow update, i check no new update after 5.1.1Note edge is getting it. But it will take time getting to everyone. Better waiting for the offical update OTA.

By then, the phone would able to use for a few more years.
There is 1 most important thing to take note.
Most brand will release the same series on model yearly; ex S4 -> S5 > S6 > S7....
Every new series, new features will be added.
This is business operation, and if not, the brand will be ceased to exist.
Also, most ISP do have contract for 2 years, include 1st year on warranty.
Another Business style of operation is fixed battery, non-removable; for 2 reasons.
1. Many old & existing models with removable battery, this give work for battery manufacturer.
2. Non-removable battery do have its own advantages.
2.1. This is to avoid imitation battery which may damaged some components inside the phone, as it do explode while charging &or using; as reports from newspaper.
2.2. Non-removable battery give business to those "Power bank" manufacturers.
This is all about business and turnover on profits.
