Samsung appears to be working hard to roll out Google's new operating system to its devices, with a few handsets receiving it within a few days. It is now being reported that the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update has been seeded to the Galaxy Note 5, a few days after the original version of the firmware was released to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920C) in Cambodia with build number N920CXXU2BPB6. It went on to say that the firmware update should be over the air (OTA).
The report went on to say the firmware update should be rolled out in phases and should come with features like Doze, Google Now on Tap and browser with ad-blocking support.
Interestingly, Samsung is yet to officially announce the release of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow or Android 6.0 for the Galaxy Note 5 and other eligible devices. So, one has to take the report with a pinch of salt.
Meanwhile, the South Korean technology giant has started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update to the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, as announced Monday, Feb. 15. A statement from Samsung said the company will "make separate announcements on details of OS updates schedule for each market according to market situation and carriers' requirements."
The firmware update came weeks after Samsung released the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.
Samsung is expected to release the Android Marshmallow update to over a dozen devices, including the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, Galaxy E7, Galaxy E5, Galaxy J7, Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J2.
