Android 6.0 Marshmallow releases to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 user by accident


The Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS rolled out a few weeks back, and mobile devices such as Google’s own Nexus series as well as Huawei, and LG’s G4, V10, and G3 have started accommodating the new update. Samsung device users, on the other hand, have already accepted the fact that they would need to wait a bit longer before they can get their hands on the latest Android version as the South Korean tech giant is yet to finish testing the operating system.

Despite this, one T-Mobile Galaxy Note 5 owner reportedly used the latest update already, therefore making other users wonder whether Samsung is also ready to roll out the new update or if it was just a simple glitch.

The user was kind enough to share the screenshots from his phone after he was surprised that his device finished the process in XDA Forums. According to reports, a broken IMEI was in the updated Galaxy Note 5, which disabled all telephone features on the Wi-Fi only model causing T-Mobile’s network to download the latest software. This rules out that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow that the Samsunng Galaxy Note 5 owner have was a glitch. Website Phone Arena posted last week that the leak is an error on Samsung’s part, and other devices will follow the lead including the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy S6 Edge+.

Meanwhile senior members of the XDA Developer Forum have created a way for Samsung Galaxy 4 users to be able to update into the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software. They were able to generate a compatible version of an operating software, which is reportedly based on Cyanogen Mod CM13 Custom ROM Software. Take note, however, that the update is specific for Samsung Galaxy S4 (Model Number S4 GT-I9505 International LTE Models only) and is by no means released by Samsung or Google.
