Android 7 (aka Nougat) is set to be released a few months from now, yet not all Samsung phones have received Android 6.0 update. Fortunately, the South Korean tech giant is doing its best to make up to its consumers and is distributing Marshmallow updates as fast as it can.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4
One such model that has received the update is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Variants of this 2014 flagship phone all over the world have already received Android 6.0, but the update has found its way to Australia just this July 21st. The rollout will be gradual, though, so Note 4 owners will have to wait for a few days or weeks before it would reach them.
The update will be more than 1GB in size, so people must make sure that their phone’s memory capacity is enough to handle it. They should also charge their device or at least ensure that it has more than 50 percent battery life before downloading the update.
As per usual, Galaxy Note 4 owners will receive an OTA notification once the update becomes available for them to download. They can also manually check for its availability by going to Settings, choosing About Device, and selecting Software Update and tapping on Update Now.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsung Galaxy S5 owners around the world are rejoicing since Marshmallow updates for the model have been steadily rolling out in the past weeks. U.S. carriers Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and US Cellular have released Android 6.0 for their Galaxy S5 handsets. The SM-G900I variant of the S5 has received the update in India, while South Korea has rolled out the update for unlocked S5 units under KT, SK Telecom, and LG Uplus. Galaxy S5 phones in other countries have received the Marshmallow update as well.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
It’s highly likely that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will not receive the Android 6.0. If you own this phone, you can either upgrade to a newer model that supports Marshmallow or use custom ROMs to get Marshmallow-like features in your device. If you opt for the latter, remember that taking this step almost always comes with a risk (such as damaging your phone), although installing custom ROMs is generally safe.
