Volumes of Verizon users have been arms up complaining about the delay the carrier has had with respect to the 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Marshmallow update.
Well, this is nothing comparable to the wait T-Mobile users have had to go through as far as Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow rolling out to the Galaxy Note 4 is concerned. Samsung started pushing this update to the unlocked variant months ago, but surprisingly, users of this phablet on T-Mobile had not received the update just yet.
This is going to change, though, as the American carrier has finally announced a Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 4 with model number SM-N910T. Since this update is available as an OTA, it will not hit all Note 4 units running on T-Mobile at once. As a result, don’t be surprised if you find your next-door neighbor’s Note 4 running on Marshmallow yet the same update is not available on your Note 4 variant of the same network.
The update will bring the phablet’s firmware version to N910TUVU2EPE3, but since it is a little bit heavy, weighing about 1.5GB, it is recommended that you connect your device to a Wi-Fi internet when updating. Of course, the updated Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will receive a bunch of new features from Google, Samsung as well as T-Mobile itself.
The most notable additions include Google’s Now on Tap, Doze mode, enhanced apps permissions system, App Standby as well as expanded usage of the fingerprint scanner. A lot of these features are what you will also find on the Marshmallow update that Samsung has begun pushing to the Galaxy On7, a mid-range smartphone that was unveiled last year.
Although the device’s debut saw another Galaxy On5 smartphone released, it is only the On7 (2015) that is receiving the Marshmallow update. However, this doesn’t rule out the Galaxy On5 (2015) from being updated with the same OS sooner or later.
Other than the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, both Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy On7 (2015) will also be updated with the latest security patch.
