Samsung has previously stated intentions to release Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates for its current and last generation flagships and Hungarian Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910F) owners may have spotted an update heading their way in the past day or so.
Interestingly, Samsung hadn’t planned to roll out Marshmallow to its older phones until next year and given that a number of Note 4 owners are still steadily receiving Android 5.1.1, we certainly hadn’t expected an update so soon. Therefore, we could be looking at a limited early rollout or soak test, which we’ve seen other manufacturers do in the past.
According to the source, Samsung’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow update introduces a new Air Command menu and a screen-off note taking option that uses the device’s S Pen. Marshmallow also brings with it some core Android improvements, including the new Doze mode to save on idle battery consumption and Google Now On Tap, to search for results based on the current content on the display. The update is also said to offer some performance improvements.
We’re not sure how long it will be until Samsung starts a broader rollout or if this is just a limited test or similar. We can only hope that a Galaxy Note 4 Marshmallow update will spread across Europe and beyond before the year is out.
