Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and Note 4 on AT&T get Android Marshmallow

AT&T subscribers who own these two handsets that were apparently stuck with Lollipop can finally move forward, as their devices receive Android 6.0. Unfortunately, there is little hope about an official Nougat update for them.

Android 7.0 Nougat is already available for a few Nexus devices, and a lot of other handsets will soon get the update. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy Note 4 units on AT&T are far from such an update, since they only ran Android 5.1 Lollipop until this month. Now, the first Android Marshmallow update for them is finally rolling out.

The new firmware for the Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy Note 4 handsets on AT&T is based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and includes the usual goodies - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, more emojis, AT&T WiFi calling and video calling, as well as Advanced Messaging. Obviously, the entire Android interface gets a visual update as well when moving from Lollipop to Marshmallow.

While the update has begun its rollout last week, on September 8th, there are still users who did not get the update notification yet. The new firmware is quite large, weighing around 1.3 GB, and those who want to hurry up should ensure they have enough space, a fully charged device, and then manually check for and initiate the update.

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.
