Samsung has yet to complete the rollout of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to all of its intended devices but the company is working constantly to deliver that. According to reports, there will be more carrier units of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 series in line of the firmware.


Galaxy Note 5 units are getting updated in the United States, this time, under T-Mobile. According to reports, the over-the-air or OTA release should reach subscribers which leaves mobile network provider AT&T behind.

In a report from SamMobile, it appears that T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy Note 5 update via OTA and for a memory of 1421.63 MB. As with previous Samsung Galaxy Android updates, the Android 6.0 firmware should offer some of the well known Marshmallow update treats. These include Google Now on Tap, improved interface, faster performance and new app permissions system.

Users should also be prepared to see their Facebook Messenger functions deleted. As noted by the report, the T-Mobile changelog will remove the app along with Instagram, and WhatsApp “functions.” The update will not wipe out the program given they are on their latest versions. The removal will only happen on pre-loaded apps as linked to the storage system. For those who have not received the notification, they can check and install manually via Settings » About device » Software update menu.

On top of delivering updates to its devices, Samsung is also under pressure to offer better handsets. As the Samsung Galaxy S7 lineup still needs to receive both critical and commercial acclaim, Forbes noted that there is pressure on the company to return to glory perhaps through its Galaxy Note series. According to reports, some of the things that people should expect include Exynos 8890 chipset, IP68 rating that offers significant waterproofing and dustproofing capabilities. There should be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 version as well same with what the company did on the Galaxy S7 range.
