Samsung Galaxy Note 4 gets Android Marshmallow in Malaysia


It’s been a long wait but it seems that Samsung has finally begun rolling out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates to the Galaxy Note 4 phablet in Malaysia.

This is great news for local Samsung users who have stuck to the 5.7-inch smartphone as the latest version of Android brings a whole host of new features like Now on Tap and Doze.

For those unfamiliar with those two features, Now on Tap lets Google scan whatever is on your screen and give you relevant search results. Doze, on the other hand, is a battery saving mode that puts your smartphone in a low-power state when it’s idle to dramatically reduce battery consumption.

Perhaps the thing that will likely be valued the most by Galaxy Note 4 users is the improved performance, as one of our readers informs us that the handset is noticeably faster when launching apps after the update.

We have also been informed that the Galaxy Note 4 is a local Malaysian unit so this roll out should come to your Galaxy Note 4 unit soon too. If it hasn’t already, be patient as the roll out might not hit everyone immediately.
