Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users are finally getting the latest version of Marshmallow. The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware, however, will only be compatible with the Korean variant of the 2016 Phablet by Samsung.

A post published on Team Android says that the firmware, which sports build number KSU1BPHA, can be installed on all Note 7 units bearing the model no. SM-N930S. Practically, this is the model that supports Korean network standards. It’s based on Samsung’s Exynos chipset. Users can make sure that they have the right Note 7 unit by verifying the model number.

Open the Settings app on your device, and tap About Device. Your device’s model number and other technical details will be listed on the screen.  Looking back, the latest Note 4 update for Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow didn’t bring major changes, but it provided significant bug fixes. Owners of the Korean Note 7 device can install the firmware Over-the-Air.

As usual, a push notification should prompt users that the update is available so they can download it. Once the update is ready, Korean users of the Galaxy Note 7 will be able to go through the installation process by simply following the onscreen instructions/prompts.

You may also double check the availability of this update by navigating to Settings>About Device>Software Updates. Tap on the option that says ‘Check for Software Updates’. The system automatically searches for new firmware that’s ready for installation on the device.

Before going through with the download and installation, owners of the Note 7 need to make sure that their device is fully charged (there should be at least 80 % battery power). Also, make sure that you are connected to a strong and stable Wi-Fi network so that the download and update roll smoothly.
