Marshmallow beta comes to Galaxy Note 5 in U.S.
Samsung has begun rolling out a Marshmallow beta to a small number of Galaxy Note 5 handsets in the U.S.
This is the first time Samsung’s flagship phablet has received an Android 6.0 update, and it comes just days after the company began upgrading the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.
Around 200 Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920A) owners on AT&T have received the beta, according to SamMobile. “Some of them received an email with instructions on installing the beta update using the company’s app.”
The update comes with build number MMB29K.N920AUCU2BPB1, and it includes Android’s February security patch. It brings the same TouchWiz design improvements we’ve already seen on the Galaxy S6 series, but it’s unclear whether there are any major new features.

It took Samsung less than a month to make its Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 available to all after it began beta testing, so hopefully the Note 5’s will go public before the end of February. We’re expecting to see a beta for the Galaxy S6 edge+ imminently, too.
