If you’re a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 user or a S6 Edge Plus one and you happen to have AT&T as a carrier, you’ve probably wondered why you haven’t gotten the Android Marshmallow OS yet.
Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore, it just takes a while for carriers to be in line with OS updates because they have to layer the OS with their own interface. But now, your Note 5 or S6 Edge Plus device will be getting the Android Marshmallow OS as well.
Apart from rolling the Android OS update, AT&T also announced that the upgrade will also come with carrier-specific improvements. One of those improvements is AT&T video calling. How awesome is that? You get the latest available Android OS version and you also get a video calling system.
Normally, users that own Samsung Galaxy Note 5 or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus should be getting a notification that their devices have been updated, but if you are in that position and you haven’t received it yet, you’ll have to check manually to see if the update is available. All you have to do is go to the About device tab in settings and refresh the Software Update option. The device will then check to see if Android Marshmallow is available.
If it’s available, the download will start automatically and if you want to know if the update downloaded successfully this is what you do. You go to the Settings panel and from there to the About device tab which will reveal a information window. There, you should see that the Android version is 6.0.1 (which is Marshmallow) and that the baseband is N920AUCU2BPE6 for Note 5 and G928AUCU2BPE6 for S6 Edge Plus.
Apparently, at this point, only 10% of capable units have the Android M update, while 90% are still waiting for it.
