Samsung took longer than rivals like Motorola, LG and HTC in releasing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its high-end devices, but it has now started pushing the firmware to two-year-old devices as well. The latest handset to get the OS is the Galaxy Note 4.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OTA (over-the-air) update has now been seeded to the Exynos 5433 variant of Galaxy Note 4 in several countries like Poland, India and the US, according to GSMArena. It added that the firmware weighs about 1.3GB, and shared screenshots of the update taken from a Turkish forum.
The Galaxy Note 4 came running Android 4.4.4 KitKat when it was released in 2014, before being upgraded to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. It will now get the Marshmallow OS â€” most likely in phases, as is the case with all OTA updates.
The South Korean technology giant has already rolled out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its flagship devices like the Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+.
