Android 6.0 beta update rolling out to some Galaxy Note 5 units in the US

Samsung started looking for beta testers last month for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge in South Korea and the UK. Those who registered themselves to test the beta software received the Marshmallow beta update shortly. Now, the Android 6.0 beta update seems to be rolling out to some Galaxy Note 5 (AT&T variant) units in the US.

Apparently, the company selected only 200 participants with AT&T’s Galaxy Note 5, and some of them received an email with instructions on installing the beta update using the company’s app. Now, some of the participants have started receiving the Android 6.0 beta update for their Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920A). This update should keep some annoyed Galaxy Note 5 users happy.

Updated Galaxy Note 5 units show build number MMB29K.N920AUCU2BPB1 and a kernel build date of February 2, 2016. The update, which has a file size of 1355.94MB, also brings February’s Android security patch. The UI has the same look and feel that we saw with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge’s Android 6.0 beta.

Nothing is known about any possible improvements or feature additions regarding the S Pen yet. If you are someone who has received this update, let us know more about the performance and battery life of the device as well as any new features should you find them.

Just received the new security update for my Note 4 which I hear is a predecessor to receiving the 6.0 Marshmallow update. If they’re prepping my Note 4, Note 5 should be getting 6.0 very soon.

Sadly, sammobile wouldn’t have the firmware posted. In fact, they don’t have ANY of the “A” variant firmware files posted:

I hate samsung because of their updates but i also cant convince myself to switch brands. I was not happy with my note 4 in terms of updates and wanted to get the nexus 6p but finally ended up geting the note 5 with better hopes . Probably switching bands this year :(

Want the latest Android? Buy Samsung’s new flagship or buy a Nexus. From all OEMs Samsung is the worst in their updates. Beta so late? This means most devices won’t get it before S7 launch as I expected. The new UI and touchwiz will be a selling point for their S7 in their presentation they will talk how well they listened to their customers and how they innovate with the new TouchWiz. Just as I feared. I don’t even want to think about how late the S6 will get Android N if it gets it ever by this rate.
