A few days ago, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge will be upgraded to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but some users will need to wait a little longer because the update will be available over the air and will reach their devices depending on the region they live and the carrier they’re connected to. Now, it seems that the latest Android firmware is rolling out to the owners of a Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920C in Cambodia and the software carries the build number N920CXXU2BPB6.
According to a report, the firmware will be pushed out over the air soon, but for now, it can be downloaded and installed via Samsung Smart Switch and via SamMobil. The users who will install Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on their Note 5 phablets will notice the new features and improvements. The battery of this phone has a capacity of 3000mAh, but with the Doze and App Standby modes, its life will be considerably extended. Doze will put your phone to sleep when you’re not using it, while App Standby mode is focusing on less used applications and will preserve the battery life.
Samsung has said that “With the release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Samsung’s Galaxy devices, a whole host of new and improved features are now available,” mentioning that “Two of the most useful are Samsung Internet 4.0, which offers better privacy and functionality from the native Samsung browser than ever, and Cross App, which lets people access their most useful apps while inside the messaging program.”
None of the US carriers AT&T, Sprint or Verizon knows for sure when Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will reach their Note 5 device, but the Canadian carrier TELUS has assured its subscribers that the update will start rolling out on March 9, and it’s the same day when the Galaxy S6 edge Plus will be upgraded as well.
The Note 5 was released in August, last year, with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. The phone has a large 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a QHD resolution, it’s powered by an Exynos 7420 Octa core processor clocked at 2.1GHz, which is backed by 4GB of RAM, it has a primary camera of 16MP with f/1.9 optics, OIS, autofocus and 4K video recording capabilities, while the front camera is 5MP and has an aperture of f/1.9. On the outside, it looks almost identical to the Galaxy S6, only that it offers an S Pen to write or draw on the screen.
