Good news for Galaxy Note 5 owners on the T-Mobile network. Today the carrier has started rolling out the Android Marshmallow update to the device. The update is coming to Note 5 users as an OTA update and weighs in at a hefty 1.4GB. This is one that you will certainly need to be on Wi-Fi to download and you can expect a 10-20 minute total install time once you do get it downloaded. For those keeping score, the updated build is N920TUVV2DPD1.
The adoption of Android Marshmallow continues today with the release of the latest supported build of Android coming to both the Verizon LG V10 and the Sprint Galaxy Note 5. For those of you on Verizon who have a V10, the build you are looking for is VS99022A while on Sprint, the version you want to get for your Note 5 is N920PVU2BPC3. As with all of these update, they are rolling out in phases so it make take a day or up to a week for it to actually come to your device. Once it does, you will have all of the benefits of Android Marshmallow including things like Doze and more robust app permissions.
Although it is only hitting Asia and Europe at the moment, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is starting to see the Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 update roll out globally. The update will bring the latest security updates to the phablet along with several other UI tweaks that are exclusive to Samsung. While the South Korean company has made no official announcements – and they rarely do – it is expect that this update will roll out globally over the course of the next few days.
Last week as everyone probably knows by now, Samsung introduced the GalaxyNote 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, their two latest editions to the Galaxy line up. The specs for both devices are impressive and you can check out the Galaxy Note 5 specs here while the Galaxy S6 edge+ specs are here. As with any new device, there are a set of new wallpapers that come with them. While I’m not a huge fan of Samsung devices, I do think their wallpapers are nice and I’ve managed to get all of them from both devices for you to download.
Today Samsung announced the new Galaxy Note 5 and it is an awesomely powerful phablet. The 5.7″ HD display device will be available starting on August 21st and will come in a 32GB and 64GB storage flavors for $739.99 and $839.99 respectively. Preorders are being taken now at most mobile providers here in the US including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint along with retailer Best Buy.
