Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was released in October 2014 following its announcement the previous month.
However, unlike the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 which is rumored to reduce the number of variants sent out to different regions in a bid to improve the speed at which software updates are released, the Note 4 has about 9 different versions based on their model numbers and region of destination.
While most versions of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have already been updated with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, it is only now that those using the European version with model number N910F are starting to see this operating system. The N910F variant is not the only Galaxy Note 4 being sold in Europe, those living in the same region have also been able to buy a Note 4 with model number N910C, and however, this variant has already received the update in the region.
It will come as good news for those using Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910F), especially that the Marshmallow update has been around for quite some time now. In the update package, users of the 2014 phablet will require freeing space of up to 1.3GB in order to accommodate the upgrade. According to reports, it seems the build number of the update varies with respect to the carrier or region in question.
The update has already been reported in areas such as Germany, Ireland, Hungary, and the UK, among others. The good news is that it is not only coming to unlocked versions but also to carrier-branded versions such as those on Vodafone, A1 as well as Swisscom.
What Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow brings to Galaxy Note 4 owners
Just like the rest, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 owners receiving the new Marshmallow update will receive features such as Google Now on Tap, Doze, improved app permissions management, more uses for the fingerprint scanner as well as a new version of the TouchWiz UI.
There are also some expected general improvements in stability as well as the performance of the Note 4 following the update.
So, if you still own this 2014 phablet with model number N910F, this is your time to upgrade to the latest software version. Probably, this might be the last update Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users might see as the device gets older, so, make sure you update your device when the opportunity comes your way.
If the OTA update notification has not appeared on your device, you can opt for a manual check via the About phone>Software update settings.
