Samsung started pushing Android 6.0 to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge earlier this week, and now it looks like the push has been extended to another Galaxy flagship.
Android 6.0.1 appears to be rolling out to the Galaxy Note 5, at least the model that’s available in Cambodia (SM-N920C). SamMobile reports that the update is being offered through Samsung’s Smart Switch software. The update is build N920CXXU2BPB6.
Samsung’s version of Android 6.0 looks fairly similar to its version of Android 5.1, save for a status bar theme that’s now white and blue rather than the multiple shades of blue that it was before. There are some new software features for Note 5 owners to look forward to, though. Samsung has updated its browser app to version 4.0 and added features like Secret Mode, which will let you browse without having your history or passwords saved. Also included is Cross App, which lets you open one app while inside another. For example, you could get an in-app browser after clicking a link in your messaging app.
Finally, Note 5 owners can expect standard Android 6.0 features like Google Now on Tap, improved app permissions, and the battery optimizations that come with Doze mode.
The bad news is that it there don’t appear to be any reports of Note 5 units getting Android 6.0.1 outside of Cambodia. That means that most Note 5 owners will have to continue to wait for their helping of Marshmallow. The good news is that it appears that work on the update is done, and so hopefully we’ll start seeing it appear in other regions soon.
