Samsung continues to work on the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a range of its devices. According to reports, several of its Galaxy units are added to the list including the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+.
It has taken a while for a number of Samsung devices to have access to the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. According to reports, following the beta testing, Verizon Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ are now in line to get the Android 6.0 software update.
According to Android Community, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the said units was initially rolled out to regions such as Canada and South Korea. Additionally, people should see the MMB29K.G928VVRU2BPC2 or MMB29K.N920VVRU2BPC2 builds on their phones. If the software versions have not come up yet then it means that the update is not yet ready for the device. Nonetheless, there is a manual option for this. Just open Settings > About device > Software updates. If the prompt appears, then users just need to choose Download now and Install update.
As with previous Android updates, SamMobile reports that the Galaxy Note 5 will be in for the usual treats for the Android 6.0 update. These include ad-blocking support, Google Now on Tap, Doze and several improvements to the interface. There should also be a slight performance boost with the upgrade. Users are advised to connect to a reliable internet or Wi-Fi connection before proceeding with installation. It is also best to charge the device fully. For those who are in other regions or under other carriers, it is best to confirm with regional units and mobile networks on the exact date of release. These things vary depending on the location and provider.
