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


Last updated: June 7th, 2016 at 16:24 UTC+02:00

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.
