Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ owners in Canada are apparently receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA update right now.
Starting March, the Marshmallow update began rolling out to Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Note 5 across the globe in phases. Now, the update has reached the Canadian shores with Bell and Telus being the early birds to initiate the firmware package rollout in this country. Rogers customers, on the other hand, may have to wait a little longer until April 27, Android Authority reported.
As the update has been scheduled in phases, it might take a few days before the firmware notification reaches the device. The firmware update notification can also be checked out manually by navigating to Settings -> About Device -> Software Update.
Prior to downloading and installing the Android 6.0 update, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ need to have enough space onboard because the firmware size is apparently more than 1 GB. A stable Wi-Fi connection is also recommended for uninterrupted download.
In the U.S., Verizon Wireless started pushing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to Galaxy Note 5 users recently. The OTA updates for AT&T and T-Mobile models of this device are in testing phase and it’s believed to roll out very soon.
To top it off, Verizon’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge also started receiving the OTA update last week. The tech giant’s 2014 flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 is getting the software package in South Korea and few other place, but the U.S. carriers are yet to be announced the roll out date.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update brings in Doze battery-saver feature, which helps in prolonging the stand-by time. In addition, Google Now on Tap option and app permission-related improvements have also been added to the package.
