Android Marshmallow made its debut on Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. Last year, even after the official release, Android M was not released on other smartphones. Very few devices received the update. This year the OS is rolling out on all the popular smartphones. Galaxy Note 5 is one such phone.
Galaxy Note 5 users, here’s your time to celebrate. Samsung has now started rolling out Android Marshmallow update for the device. In the last week, the company also rolled out Marshmallow update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 as well. Currently, only Galaxy Note 5 devices with model number SM-N920C are receiving the update.
“The update is currently out in Cambodia (for the SM-N920C) with build number N920CXXU2BPB6; it’s available via Samsung Smart Switch and through our firmware section, and it should be going out to devices over the air,” reported Sam Mobile. If you own Galaxy Note 5 with model number SM-N920C but still haven’t received the update, then do it manually it. For manual installation of Android Marshmallow update, go to Settings > About device > Software update. Please note that the update will take time to be available for all the Galaxy Note 5 devices.
According to a report published by International Business Times UK, “users have complained of not being able to connect their VR sets to their Note 5 after completing the update. A few other users, however, say that this may be a build problem for those who have not received the update automatically but downloaded the firmware to update their OS.” The report further said that “A few AT&T Galaxy Note 5 owners in the US were able to access the Marshmallow in the first week of February in a beta testing phase but did not report any such issues. This means the company may be working to fix this issue before it rolls out the update to more regions.” Right now, you do have a choice of a manual update, but it is recommended to wait until Samsung fixes the issues with Galaxy Note 5 Android Marshmallow update.
