Samsung has started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 in India. The new update comes days after the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge received the latest Android experience in the country.
The Android Marshmallow update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 brings Android 6.0.1 along with an upgraded TouchWiz UX. It also comes with Google’s March security update to deliver you a more secured experience.
Samsung has provided all the core Marshmallow features such as Doze mode, Google Now on Tap and enhanced App Permissions. In addition, the update has tweaks like quick connect, advanced power saving mode and a new vibration pattern concept.
The Android Marshmallow update also upgrades Knox version on the Galaxy Note 5. Besides, there are updates to some existing Google apps and an improved fingerprint support.
You are recommended to use an active Wi-Fi network or an unlimited data plan to download the update on your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 as it’s over a gigabyte in size. Also, settings for themes, email accounts and icons are likely to be reconfigured after installing the update.
As the Android Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 is rolling out in phases, it might take some time to reach your device. You can, of course, check its availability manually by going to ‘Software updates’ from ‘About phone’ settings.
The Galaxy Note 5 was launched in India back in September last year with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system. It sports a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED QHD display and is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor.
