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


Last updated: February 3rd, 2016 at 10:21 UTC+02:00

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.
