Samsung has started rolling out the anticipated Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its Galaxy Note 4 in India. The new update brings Android 6.0.1 to the Galaxy Note model that was launched in the country back in October 2014.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was originally running on Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, but it received an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop last year. The new software upgrade surpassed Android 5.1 version and finally brought the latest Google’s platform.
The arrival of the Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 4 brings features like Google Now on Tap, Doze mode and an improved app permissions. You’ll also be provided with an advanced power saving mode that automatically restricts background data consumption and delivers an extended battery life.
In addition to Android 6.0.1, the Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 4 comes bundled with a new TouchWiz UX that has “enhanced usability” and an all-new visual design. The new software version also comes with a new vibration pattern and a quick connect feature.
You’ll need to disable the default encryption on your smartphone before installing the new operating system as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow doesn’t support the existing ‘Decrypt’ function. Once installed, the new update requires all the core Android apps to be upgraded to the latest version.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 4 is available as an over-the-air (OTA) release. It’s around 1.4GB in size. Further, you can check its available simply by going to ‘System update’ option from ‘About phone’ settings.
This isn’t the first time when Samsung has released the latest Android Marshmallow version for its Galaxy device. The Korean giant released the same Android update for Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 models in the recent past.
