After the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Android 6.0 and 6.0.1 is supposed to reach the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+. Out of the big four US carriers, AT&T was the latest to seed the update to the larger flagships.
Now it seems that the carrier – which owns the second largest market share in the country after Verizon – is going to be the last to do so for the Galaxy Note 4 as well.
T-Mobile has just released the OTA update of Marshmallow to the 2014 flagship phablet, the third after Sprint and Verizon. This makes AT&T the only carrier to not have done so yet.
Besides adding the standard Android 6.0 features to the device, such as Google Now On Tap and Doze Mode, the same add-on feature exclusive for the Galaxy Note 5 is also being made available to the Note 4.
It is called screen-off notes and it allows users to scribble notes on the screen of the device without unlocking it. All they have to do is basically pull out the S Pen and it would be ready for use. The cool thing about it is that it can be disabled via the phone’s settings.
Anyway, after all the major carriers are done we wonder if the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 would be eligible for Marshmallow, though there’s always the option to root the devices and install the Android 6.0 custom ROM if the official route is blocked off.
