Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users might not be having their hopes high as far as Android Nougat update is concerned, but one thing for sure is that Android Marshmallow is compatible with the phablet.
Of course, there are many Galaxy Note 4 users out there who have already made it to the latest version of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but there are still others who are still dreaming of the update. One of the dreamers has now been taken care of and this is U.S. Cellular. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 handset that is locked to the American carrier, you can now update the phone’s software to Marshmallow.
In case you have been watching out for the Marshmallow update, you will be sure to get things like Google Now on Tap, a new app permissions system, a battery-saving mode known as Doze, a redesigned app drawer as well as the latest Android Security Patch. The update also carries lots of stability improvements and bug fixes.
Since it is coming as an OTA, Android Marshmallow will not hit all Samsung Galaxy Note 4 units on U.S. Cellular at once. However, there is room to manually check for its availability by going to Settings>About device>Software update>Update now.
There have been reports that phones powered by a Snapdragon 801 and below will not be eligible for an update to Android Nougat. Well, the Galaxy Note 4 has a Snapdragon 805 on board, which could mean the phone will at some point get an update to the latest Android dessert. As for the version that is powered by an Exynos 5433, it is still unknown whether the update will also make it to the device.
As for the rest of the 2015 and 2016 Samsung Galaxy flagships, the Nougat update should be coming very soon, especially for the latter group.
