Yesterday, Sprint has finally begun to roll out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 phablet. In just a few hours after we wrote about this new firmware, Galaxy Note 4 users started to receive the update notification as well. Although they use an older device, they receive the same Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow variant.

According to user screenshots of the Software update screen, the new baseband version is N910PVPU4DPC1, its size being almost 1.4 GB. The 1394.6 MB firmware packs together the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update and the March 1 Android security patch. Build number is MMB29M.N910PVPU4DPC1, and the kernel is dated February 29th, its version number being 3.10.40-7381751.

As expected, the update integrates all the new things Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow delivers when upgrading from Android Lollipop - Google Now on Tap contextual search, Doze mode for improved autonomy, granular app permissions, many small tweaks and fixes. Being a Samsung device, Galaxy Note 4 also gets the updates for TouchWiz - a new default web browser with integrated ad-blocker, new animations, app icons, and folder designs.

Same as for the Galaxy Note 5 update, Sprint rolls out the new Galaxy Note 4 firmware in stages, and the process is expected to be complete by April 8th.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
