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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
