Canadian carriers Telus and Koodo have started rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The software update schedule of Telus suggests that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be available for the Galaxy Note 4 from May 23 onward. Now Galaxy Note 4 owners on Telus as well as Koodo have confirmed receiving the latest software update.
"FYI, Telus Note4 folks, get your 6.0.1 now!" said a Reddit user.
"I'm on Koodo with an unlocked Eastlink model. Just started downloading the update now," said another redditor.
Although some Galaxy Note 4 owners have confirmed receiving the latest Android operating system, others have complained that they have not received the latest update.
"It's mentioned that the Note 4 will receive the update on 23rd of May, well I didn't receive anything yet," said a disappointed Telus Galaxy Note 4 owner.
Customers should note that carriers normally release a software update in phases and some customers may have to wait longer than others. If customers do not get a notification, they can manually check it from Menu > Settings > About Device > Software Update > Update.
Reports suggest that the software release weighs about 1 GB. Customers who want to download Android 6.0 Marshmallow on their smartphones should have a strong Wi-Fi connection. It is also advisable to have at least 50 percent battery charge before starting the software download.
Galaxy Note 4 owners in many other parts of the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe and others have reported to have received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, and finally Canadian customers will be able to enjoy the new features of the operating system.
Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 4 during the IFA event in September 2014 and it came running on Android 4.4 KitKat. The phablet has received Android 5.0 Lollipop update in many regions and the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software release was much awaited by customers.
The Galaxy Note 4 has impressive features, such as a 5.7-inch screen, a quad-core processor, 3 GB of RAM and more, and it can compete with many new handsets available in the market.
The device has a 3,220 mAh battery, which Samsung claims can offer up to 20 hours of talk time, up to 82 hours of audio playback and up to 14 hours of video playback time. The smartphone also supports fast charging and customers can get up to 50 percent charge within 30 minutes.
With the power management tools of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Galaxy Note 4 owners can get even more out of the device.
