Samsung testing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 in the U.S.

Galaxy Note 5

With #Android 6.0 #Marshmallow becoming mainstream with each new device launch, the likes of Samsung are yet to send out the update to its current crop of devices. A new report now talks about a select bunch of users in the United States being invited to try out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta on their Galaxy Note 5.

Bear in mind that there’s still no concrete word on how Samsung chooses these customers, so we’re guessing it’s merely down to fate in order to be eligible for this update testing. The update is only being sent out to the AT&T model of the handset for now and it is said that about 200 participants have been chosen as of yet. Naturally, this will be a preliminary version of the update and is bound to contain a glitch or two. So don’t expect all functionality to be smooth even if you qualify for the testing process.

If you recall, it was originally mentioned that the Galaxy Note 5 would start getting the Android 6.0 update in December 2015, but that timeline has come and gone already. Later, Samsung mentioned that all its 2015 flagships will receive the update by at least February 2016, which is something that the customers are hanging onto now.

Do you own a Galaxy Note 5? Would you be willing to take Android 6.0 beta for a spin?
