This is Android 6.0 Marshmallow on the Galaxy Note 4
The Galaxy Note 4 became Samsung’s first smartphone to get an Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade on Monday, but unless you live in Hungary, you won’t be getting it just yet. However, you can get an early glimpse at it in the hands-on video below.
Android 6.0 is a massive upgrade for the Note 4, not only delivered new Marshmallow features like Doze, native fingerprint scanner support, and a new app permissions system — but also a number of features and design traits from the Galaxy Note 5.
That includes the Note 5’s Air Command menu, the terrific Screen Off Memo feature, and many of its app icons. All of these things can be seen in the hands-on video below.
Looks good, right? You may have noticed that Marshmallow is a little laggy in this video, but it’s thought that is mostly because the system language is changed at the beginning of the video and the device was not restarted.
It may also be because this is essentially “soak test” software. It’s final, but it may still need some performance tweaks before it rolls out to everyone — which is why Samsung has only made it available in Hungary so far.
Nevertheless, Marshmallow is an upgrade that’s well worth looking forward to if you have a Note 4. Assuming this rollout goes well, the new firmware should begin making its way to other markets very soon.
