Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates roundup – March 22, 2016
Original post, February 19: We all knew that this was not too far away after Samsung announced its Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates for its Galaxy S6 edge and edge+ handsets. Today, Samsung has begun rolling out its version of Marshmallow for the Galaxy Note 5.
So far the update has only been spotted in Cambodia, but should be heading to other regions over-the-air as we speak. This means that the updating is available for SM-N920C models so far, and is accompanied by a N920CXXU2BPB6 build number.
We know that there are quite a few changes in the Marshmallow build, including some UI tweaks, an updated version 4.0 web browser with ad-blocking support, and the all new Cross app. Not forgetting new core Android features such as Doze, Google Now on Tap, and improved app permissions. For a closer look at what’s included in the update, check out our thoughts on Samsung’s Marshmallow beta:
Marshmallow on the Galaxy S6 is a welcome improvement
The update will gradually roll-out across the globe in the usual waves. If a manual OTA check isn’t yielding results, eager customers should be able to spot the update through Samsung’s Smart Switch software. If you are up for a manual installation, you can always grab the ripped firmware from SamMobile’s archives. Just make sure that you’re installing the firmware on the correct Note 5 model.
