Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android Marshmallow update
We've received a first look at Marshmallow on the Note 5 thanks to an early build which rolled out to a small number of devices. Though this is not the final version of the software, it gives us a good indication of what it will be like and our first impressions have been positive – read more at the link above.
Two Marshmallow timetables showing Samsung's plans for the rollout leaked earlier this year. The most recent places the Note 5 at the top of the list, with an expected rollout window of Q1 2016. You can see the schedule on our Marshmallow: update overview page. Given the soak test that has been going on for a while now, it seems likely that the Note 5 will receive Marshmallow very early in 2016.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android Lollipop update
T-Mobile recently rolled out an update that secured the Note 5 against the Stagefright vulnerability, but did not upgrade the device beyond Android 5.1.1. We tested the Note 5 after applying the upgrade, and can confirm that it is now fully protected against Stagefright.
Meanwhile, Verizon pushed out a small security update to the Note 5 on September 25, but Sprint and AT&T are yet to catch up.
