Yes, if you want to see Brother printer service, your android device MUST be running android 5.0 and install the printer service plugiin app below.

「Brother Print Service Plugin」 - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brother.printservice

Why you can see HP and SAMSUNG inside your android phone? Their printer service plugins are built-in for android OS.

In my home town, all of your phones listed have android 5.0 official ROM.

What is the exact model name?

For example, S5 is SM-G900F.

Not all brother printers are supportrd for the said plugin and you can only print from a number of Google apps as stated in the description of the plugin in Google play store.

Even if it is supported, it might not work behind a router.

You can try not to connect to your router and let your note 4 to connect to the printer via wifi direct and see whether you can print from any Google apps.
