Samsung has already been testing out a beta Marshmallow available to Galaxy S6 owners in South Korea and the UK. But now its seems like a few users in America of devices such as the Galaxy Note 5, the S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ on AT&T and Verizon carriers can also get a taste of the latest operating system. Sources say that users who had signed up to participate in the Marshmallow beta test through this form, are currently seeing the update reach their devices. One user in particular, submitted screenshots of the AT&T's Galaxy Note 5 with model number SM-N920A, running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The update is said to be weighing 1355.94 MB and features a MMB29K.N920AUCU2BPB1 build number along with a February 2 kernel build number. This update looks like it was integrated with the February Android security patch, which has already been pushed out to the BlackBerry Priv and the Nexus series of devices. In relation to visual transformations, the 'squircle' icons appears to have returned, the color palette is looks brighter, as well as calibrations to the dropdown notifications tab. Users also report a noticeable improvement in the S6's performance after the upgrade, though needs to be assessed after long term use to determine just how much of an impact Marshmallow has made to the Galaxy S6. We can only hope that the Galaxy Note 5 and other Galaxy series from Samsung will benefit from the Marshmallow update. It appears that soon enough, Note 5 users will receive the full update on their devices.
