Samsung has begun rolling out its latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware for the Galaxy Note 5.

The update brings design tweaks for TouchWiz, performance improvements, and new features like Google Now on Tap and Doze.

This upgrade comes less than a week after Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge went global. It is currently being seeded to SM-N920C handsets in Cambodia right now, SamMobile reports, but providing all goes well, it should be available elsewhere soon.

This is essentially the same software that was rolled out to the Galaxy S6, but with addition features baked in for the Note 5 and its S Pen. Users can look forward to Google’s latest app permissions system, better battery life, and enhanced performance.

To check if this update is available for your Galaxy Note 5, visit the software update section in the Settings app. You can also download Samsung’s Smart Switch app for Mac and PC and check for the update there, too.

If you don’t want to wait for it to be available over-the-air, then SamMobile has the firmware package for manual flashing via Odin. Remember: This firmware is for handsets with the SM-N920C model number only. Attempting to flash it on other models could damage them.
