Google’s new operating system is landing on two more Android devices. We’re talking about the Lenovo K4 Note phablet released in January 2016, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablet connected to Verizon, which arrived in September 2015.
First, Verizon has updated the Galaxy S5 and then it continued with the Galaxy Tab S2 tablet, rolling out the same version number MMB29K.T817VVRU2BPE1, which packs all Marshmallow new features, such as Doze, Google Now on Tap, App permissions etc. In addition to these features, Verizon has brought updates to the built-in applications of this tablet, such as the stock email client, whose search capabilities have been improved, and the sort functionality is more efficient. Also, users will see new features included inside the gallery and memo applications. The update can be manually downloaded by going to the Settings menu, where users will search for it in the “system updates” section.
The Lenovo K4 Note is also getting upgraded in India and users can download the Marshmallow update that weighs 1.6GB file from Settings > About phone > System Update. Being such a large file, it’s recommended to connect to a wireless network, because we’re pretty sure that not too many users have subscribed to a generous cellular operator. Also, Marshmallow will allow users to format the microSD card and install applications on it, as it will be treated as part of the internal storage.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a tablet that it’s available in two variants of screens: 8-inch and 9.7-inch. Also, each model is powered by two variants of processors: with four cores clocked at 1.9 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.3 GHz, housed by an Exynos 5433 chip alongside a Mali-T760 MP6 GPU; or with four cores clocked at 1.8GHz and four cores clocked at 1.4GHz, which are based on a Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652 chip and are backed by an Adreno 510 GPU. The tablet supports 3GB of RAM and offers two variants of internal memories with capacities of 32GB and 64GB, which are expandable up to 128GB. The main camera from the back has a resolution of 8MP, while the one on the front is 2.1MP.
The Lenovo K4 Note has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, which supports the “TheaterMax” technology, it’s powered by a Mediatek MT6753 octa-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 processor paired with a Mali-T720MP3 GPU and 2GB of RAM for the variants with 8/16/32 GB of internal storage, while a separate variant with 16GB of storage supports 3GB of RAM.
