Here's Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in action (video)
Just two days ago, we reported that some Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users in Hungary have been treated to an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on their phones. We are dealing with the Snapdragon 805-powered SM-N910F variation, in particular. This surprised us a bit, because we are expecting the newer Galaxy Note 5 to score the Marshmallow update first, with the Note 4 allegedly getting it in February 2016. It seems like this is an isolated rollout, a soak test of sorts, so the rest of the Note 4 users across the globe should expect the latest Android flavor sometime in Q1 of next year.
Thanks to a new video that popped up yesterday, we get to see Android Marshmallow on the Note 4 in action. The majority of noteworthy features are showcased, most importantly a new Air Command menu and the cool screen-off memo feature, both of which are coming straight from the Galaxy Note 5.
Additionally, the Note 5 has also "donated" many of its stock icons to its older sibling. Marshmallow's battery life-improving Doze and Google Now on Tap are also on board. It seems that there aren't any other notable changes in tow; rest assured that we will keep you updated if anything else pops in.
Check out the video right below to see the Marshmallow version of TouchWiz running on the Note 4. Now, we noticed that the interface occasionally lags quite a lot in the demonstration video. It is said that the change of the system language is the likely culprit for the unimpressive UI performance. Additionally, we should not forget that we are dealing with a soak test, so issues are to be expected.
