[Pictures] Here’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 running Android 6.0.1

Samsung has been pretty mum about the Marshmallow update for its most current flagships, the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+. The company chose to work on Android 6.0 for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge first (rightly so, as the Galaxy S line is considerably more popular than other Galaxy lineups), involving users of the devices in a beta program to better test the new software.

But Samsung has likely been working on Marshmallow for the Note 5 and S6 edge+ along with the original S6 duo, and a tipster has sent us a few images of Android 6.0.1 running on the first metal and glass Note. We weren’t told if this is a test firmware or a final version that will soon roll out over the air, but we can see the changes in the interface implemented here are similar to those on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. Well, mainly the white and blue status bar theme, public opinion on which has been rather divided.

Other than that this is mostly the same software that is currently running on the Note 5. Our tipster says the phone feels smoother after the update, but considering the Note 5 is already as smooth as can be on Android 5.1.1, that is probably just a placebo effect. The most important question that now needs answering is: When will Marshmallow roll out to the Galaxy Note 5 and the similarly sized Galaxy S6 edge+? AT&T is reportedly doing a small beta test in the US, but there isn’t much information available about the same.

Check out Android 6.0.1 on the Note 5 in the pictures below, and let us know what you think!

You can flash any region 920c firmware my friend. Just be sure that the version of phone should be same. Also not that do not flash any carrier firmware of you model like vodafone or mat. You can simply flash Combodia or Iran release of Marshmellow which are latest at the moment.

What is happening now is hilarious! I believe that Samsung’s mobile business wants to quit!

And that is about the last version of Android you will ever see on this phone. And it is probably slower and buggier than the version the phone was originally shipped with.

Marshmallow did never handle about UI changes. Just somer new features but I agree it’s ridiculous that it take so long time before Samsung release marshmallow

Because you paid 600-700 USD or EUR for free Note 5! You want premium, you paid premium and you get….my opinion is, that we are mocked by Samsung! This is one reason why many android users have switched to Apple!
it’s not like that?

Is that 5.1.2 or 6.0? I have a GS6E+ and you cannot imagine how much i was excited for the new android release! But after seeing the pics, all I could say is that I prefare to stick on my 5.1.1 firmware since it’s the same! #disappointed

Android 6.0 has no major changes from android lollipop just some additional new features but UI is exactly same even on stock android

No UI changes. Samsung has just kept the same interface even after this major android gupgrade by Google.

Pretty similar to S6 6.0.1 which is again similar to lollipop. Hopefully some cool features are added. Or not. Just roll it out already…

Wow ,this is incredible!!! CAnnot wait for 6.0.1 it looks like it should be easy to use, mostly because it looks absolutely indentical to 5.1.1 in every single way. What a joke Marshmallow is so far, they should have called it 5.1.2 because it is such a minor change.
