Galaxy Note 6 may not come with Android N pre-installed

There have been a lot of rumors and reports concerning Samsung’s next flagship handset. It’s believed that the Galaxy Note 6 is going to be among the first devices to come with Android N pre-installed, however, a leaked user agent profile of the handset makes it seem that it may not be running Android N straight out of the box. Google may have officially announced its next major Android release but it’s yet to give it a moniker, it’s actually crowdsourcing suggestions and will make a decision over the next couple of months.

The user agent profile of Galaxy Note 6 model SM-N930A has leaked online and it shows that the device is running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. If it was going to come with Android N one would have expected that Samsung would be testing the device with Android N developer builds but this profile makes it seem like that’s not the case. This could very well mean that the Galaxy Note 6 will come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, particularly when the device is expected to be out in the first week of August.

It’s not even known for sure yet if Samsung is going to call its next flagship the Galaxy Note 6. There have been a lot of conflicting reports lately about the name of this device, many believe that Samsung is going to skip a number and call it the Galaxy Note 7 instead.

This happens every year, Note is released before next Android release, why is it surprising every year? What does concern though is that when I bought the Note 4 which was released much closer to the next Android release, most reviews said it would get the release shortly, but was one of the last phones that Samsung updated.

Android N “may” not be installed on the next Note ?? The next Note arrives in August 2016, the final build of Android N won’t be released until September 2016 at the earliest. How is there even the slightest possibility that N will be on the Note when it’s released? I’d really like to know.

The N release will happen 2 months after launch.

I would be surprised if it didn’t come with N but at the same time I wouldn’t be purchasing this device if it did not come with N, on the basis of how slow upgrades have been – granted in most every case the upgrades have been flawless but with regional releases on an sliding scale timescale

Given their current lack of updating status, I’d wait on this until an official release comes.

If this is true then it’ll be really bad for sales floor the note 6/7

I cannot understand how this even became a rumor. Android N will not even be released to Nexus devices until after the the next Note is announced.

Why are you giving misleading information every second.

1) You say in this Article Note 6 and other articles you write Note 7 Rumors.?

2) Obviously it will come with 6.0.1 has Samsung ever pre-installed a new version Android for the Note devices.
