Samsung has started rolling out the Android Marshmallow update to users of the Galaxy Note 5. SamMobile reported about the update, which is currently out in Cambodia with build number N920CXXU2BPB6. It is expected to be delivered in stages as part of Samsung's global initiative for all Marshmallow-compatible Galaxy devices.
Earlier, about 200 AT&T owners of the device in the US who had registered for the Android 6.0 beta programme were allowed access to the update.
A few days ago, Samsung announced the commencement of the Galaxy Marshmallow release, starting with the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
In the beta phase, users who experienced the latest update note it to be pretty hefty with a file size of 1.3GB. Screenshots listed by users showed that most of the blue UI elements of Samsung have been changed to grey, while Lollipop's secondary yellow accents are now blue.
Most of the features are in tandem with the beta update of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The update brings unique edge screen and new edge screen features for the Edge 6 and the Edge 6 Plus.
Canadian telecom operator Telus has also announced the dates for rolling out Marshmallow to Galaxy devices with the Note 5 scheduled to receive it on 9 March along with the Galaxy Edge Plus. As AT&T has been testing the update in the US, a rollout is expected for the Note 5 there as well.
Users are advised to keep checking their system updates as Samsung has not detailed country- wise dates for release of Marshmallow on Galaxy devices yet.
