Samsung Galaxy Note 5 marshmallow update is imminent this month. While the roll out has already started in Cambodia, the software update will start rolling out on March 13. Previously, the update release was marked on March 9, but now the date has been postponed after an announcement emerged on Twitter.
Bell Support confirmed the news of the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Samsung Galaxy Note 5 handsets this month. It wrote, “Marshmallow will be released in March 2016.” Although, a tentative date is marked on March 13, there is no confirmation yet, reports MobileSyrup.
Google first started rolling out Android 6.0 marshmallow in October last year. The Nexus devices were the first to receive the update and gradually the latest Marshmallow software started reaching out to other non-nexus devices. While other handsets from popular brands were updated to the software, Samsung galaxy Note 5 owners had to wait patiently for the update to arrive.
Since Android roll outs are slow, the Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow release will take several months before it reaches out to every single device. A few days ago, Samsung announced the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. But the list did not include the Galaxy Note 5. Now it appears that a widespread Marshmallow update to Galaxy Note 5 will happen soon, reports GottabeMobile.
According to AndroidPit, the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow has the best features, including Google Now on Tap and Doze. Google Now on Tap feature functions by creating shortcuts for the needs of creating search results for additional contextual information. Doze, however, is an intelligent battery management feature that helps to save battery power.
GSM Arena notes that Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a 5.7-inches screen with super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and 16M colors. It runs on Android v5.1.1 Lollipop and is powered by Exynos 7420 chipset. It has 16MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. The phone comes in three different variants- 32Gb, 64GB and 128GB.
