Samsung continues to update a number of its devices, especially since several Android updates are underway. According to reports, the Galaxy Note 4 is in line to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, while Android 6.1 is expected to launch sometime in June.
Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Tab S2 Android Update
It has been a problem for OEMs and carriers to deliver timely updates of the Android firmware series. That’s why even after months after the release, people are still seeing rollouts of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. While Google promised to do something about the slow rollout, Samsung and carriers like Verizon are working to deliver the update to all intended devices.
According to Android Authority, Verizon has been releasing “quite surprisingly” a good amount of Android updates lately. Just recently, Android devices like Galaxy S5, Droid Maxx 2 and several others have been updated. This time, it will be the Samsung Galaxy note 4 and Galaxy Tab S2 units.
For the Galaxy Note 4, the software update is through build number MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPD1. Verizon has reportedly included a number of enhancements including Wi-Fi calling, Android for Work, new app icon and folder design and Ultra-High-Quality-Audio UHQA (Hi-Fi Audio) mode among others.
As with other Android updates, users are advised to connect via a secure WiFi or cellular connection when updating. They should also charge their devices fully. For those who have not received the update prompt, they can simply check for the update manually via their phone settings.
Android 6.1 Update
Apart from the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, people should also be on the lookout for the Android 6.1 update. According to Neurogadget, the Android 6.1 update will be released sometime this June. However, people should not expect too much as it will only be a “relatively minor update.”
