Even as most Samsung smartphone users are waiting for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update, the Korean tech giant started pushing the long-overdue firmware update to its Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ in India. The latest software update arrives in India after Samsung started the process of updating the new flagships in October. The delay is predictable as OTA updates are rolled out in phases.

Despite the delay, what's really important is that the software update brings improvements to stability of calls and optimises battery for a longer life by stopping apps from running in the background. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (N920GUBU2AOK3) and S6 Edge+ (G928IDVU2AOK8)users in India can start updating their devices with the new software by checking for OTA release.

To do so, navigate into the device's Settings > About Phone > Software Update. The users can also wait for a notification to download and install the new firmware. The update size is expected to be around 100MB, making it important for users to connect to a secure Wi-Fi before starting the download or there may be data overages or charges.

Additionally, Samsung's software update includes security enhancements, which also brings Android's general security patch for the month of November, SamMobile reported.

The publication also reported that some users updated their devices to find out that the screen lag while waking up the screen was gone and the text detection in Galaxy Note 5's Smart Select feature has returned.
