Although the official announcement of a Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 owners on T-Mobile is still at least a few weeks away, it looks like someone already got Android 6.0 on this phablet. While this happened by accident, the official update should not be that far.

Unfortunately, nothing is official for now, but one XDA user revealed that he has a Galaxy Note 5 with a broken IMEI number that he usually uses as a WiFi phablet. However, on November 15, the device simply began to upgrade its firmware to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The user, known as danon.brown, downgraded a few times to be sure he is getting the real deal, but his Note 5 kept updating back.

In the end, system dumps and the update itself made it online soon, other Note 5 users on T-Mobile updating their devices with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow firmware. Now, it is only a matter of time until the unofficial flashable Marshmallow ROM for T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes out. Since T-Mobile and Samsung did not comment anything about this yet, it may take a while until the official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Galaxy Note 5 comes out.

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.
