Google's Nexus devices have received the latest operating system, Android 7.0 Nougat, but AT&T has just seeded last year's Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its variants of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.
Samsung had rolled out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge a few months ago, and it was followed by several carriers. Now, AT&T has started seeding the firmware to the handsets via OTA (over-the-air). The new software weighs 1.3GB and comes with security patches for the month of August.
Make sure that you backup your media files to a PC or an SD card before upgrading to the new firmware in case of an erase during the update, though it shouldn't happen ideally.
How to install Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on your device via OTA:
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow download notification will appear on your phone screen
- Press "Download" button
- Press "Restart & Install" button
- Rebooting will begin automatically
- You will see "Installing System Update" notice when installation starts
- Upgrading begins automatically
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will run on your device after upgrading is done
You can also manually check availability of the new software by going to – 'Settings' >> 'About phone' >> 'System updates' >> 'Check For Update'.
