Samsung is continuing its Android Marshmallow work as several of its devices still need to be upgraded. According to new reports, Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus units are now in place. Additionally, there is now a mass rollout of the update for Galaxy Note 4 devices.
It makes natural sense for Samsung to update other devices after is has released the upgrade to its flagship devices. The latest device “on the fringe” to be updated is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus. According to Android Community, it is the more powerful variant of the 2014 flagship from the Korean tech giant. While there are many devices that came out after the unit, there are users waiting for the S5 Plus to be updated.
Fortunately, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow has been made accessible to the unit. The primary difference between the S5 Plus unit and the flagship is that the former runs on Snapdragon 805 instead of the Snapdragon 801 version.
In another report from GSM Arena, it appears that Samsung is getting closer to its promise to deliver the Android Marshmallow to all of its intended devices as the firmware has started trickling to N910F Galaxy Note 4 units around Europe. Previously, Samsung released the update to the Exynos-based N910C model including carrier versions of the handset.
Nonetheless, this new set of updates is for the Snapdragon 805 version of the phablet series that has been around for two years now. The update requires around 1.3GB worth of memory. Build number depends on the carrier and country of the user. According to reports, the software has also been released to regions like UK, Germany, Hungary and Ireland.
