Note 5 system dump with Android 6.0 Marshmallow appears, hints at an imminent update
Samsung's recently leaked Android 6.0 Marshmallow update roadmap might carry some weight, it seems, as a rogue Note 5 OTA update has brought the official Marshmallow edition to at least one of Samsung's latest phablets on T-Mobile. The roadmap pegged the Note 5 update for December release, and, fair enough, Marshmallow for Note 5 seems to already be lurking in the shadows of the Odin update software.

Granted, the user that got it had a bit of unusual situation with lost IMEI, and rollback from a custom ROM, thus fooling the system to release it prematurely, but the fact that it is ready and, seemingly, fully functional, only hints that an official rollout is not far away. 

The user said there aren't too many visual changes, but they've been asked to give permissions for every action (that's one of the new features in Marshmallow), plus there are some differences in graphical details and layout. The build number of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow for Note 5 is Android 6.0 Marshmallow is MRA58K.N920TUVU2DOK5, so that's what you should be looking forward to in the next few weeks if you have a Note 5.

Yeah, maybe you're ok with that, but not me. Technically it's 4 icons, a widget and a notification. One would be too many for me. I don't want a Barbie phone.

I forgot you traded your Red for Pink. It's ok, it's trendy to do such these days. If anyone makes fun of you assemble a social media/protester army to eradicate them. lol

I highly doubt, note 5, 6+ december. Beginning of 2016 for rest. The lagwiz is such a heavy and huge skin that I can only imagine how much work they need to put into it to update it for marshmallow

The newest to isn't all that heavy tbh. It does have many more features than most in Android so it is heavier than most. It's not as basic as what apple does on ios so it will take some time to get it out for a their devices. I've never seen lag on my s6 edge plus.

Yeah, most of the time.I've had some occasional hiccups though. One was caused by me. I moved some music on it and left 10GB of space which should have been plenty. Got really laggy, even after all the thumbnail were created. The US carrier models are the ones that always suck. The International ones are perfect.
