Samsung and other carriers have updated the company’s latest flagships, so it’s now time for older versions to get their updates. According to new information, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 under T-Mobile is now in line for the update.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Android 6.0.1 Update
The usual practice of carriers and manufacturers is that they will update the latest flagships first before working their way to older models. This explains why even after a few months following the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, this is the only time people are seeing carriers like T-Mobile release the firmware to models like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
Fortunately, it is really happening. The handset is already two years old, thus the position on the priority list of Samsung. According to Ubergizmo, T-Mobile has finally gotten around its schedule to release the said update. Given that the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update is considered a major one, it is also sizable firmware.
People may need to free up space in their mobile phones as it will require around 1.5GB. It is also best to connect to a secure WiFi or cellular connection because a not so reliable network will render the whole update process slow.
As with other Android updates, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Galaxy Note 4 offers the usual treats like TouchWiz interface, new vibration pattern concept an resets settings for Theme, Email, Icon/Widget. It also gets rid of reinstalled WhatsApp and Instagram applications. Other features include Google Now on Tap, better app permissions, Doze mode, improved notifications and other improvements.
Other Android Updates
According to Gotta Be Mobile, other regions are also seeing a continuous slew of updates for a range of Samsung phones. These include India, the United Kingdom, Austria, Russia, Iraq and the Netherlands. Markets like Italy, Macedonia, Spain, Czech Republic, Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Croatia, Germany and Philippines among others have also seen the updates. For those who have not received the prompt, they can simply check their phone’s settings.
