After a steady start, Android 6 Marshmallow's grand roll-out appears to be gathering some much-needed steam. In particular, a number of Samsung's big guns have recently been furnished with the update. After Sprint pushed Android 6.0.1
to the Galaxy Note 4
and Note 5
earlier this week, the carrier's Galaxy S5 and S5 Sport
both joined the party as of yesterday. Now, the International edition of the Galaxy Note 4
is also getting in on the act.
With new info having emerged today pertaining to the Galaxy Note 6
, those holding 2014's Note 4 may have begun to feel a tad behind the times. But a major firmware bump can give an aging handset a rejuvenative lease of life, and once you've grabbed the latest Android 6.0.1, it may seem as though you've gotten a whole new device.
You'll surely now know score with regards to Marshmallow's features: there's Doze, Google Now on Tap and a welcome refresh to Samsung's TouchWiz overlay, among various other optimizations. Since it's version 6.0.1, you can also reap the benefits of some 200 new emoji
, and the update comes with the latest April Android security patches in tow.
As noted above, Sprint has already begun pushing the new flavor of Android to Note 4 owners. Given that the International model (SM-N910C) is now getting the update, Galaxy Note 4 owners on other carriers should expect the Marshmallow update in the very near future.
