Yes, you read that right. Samsung sure is changing if it’s true. Reports are emerging that one Galaxy Note5 user who’s on T-Mobile has received the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The user reported that after having some issues with the IMEI number not displaying on his phone, he restored it using the Odin tool. After the restore, he went into Settings and then to System Updates. Instead of receiving the update to the most recent official version, he got updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
According to the update roadmap that was leaked recently, the Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ are scheduled to receive the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow by December 2015. Their other flagships, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge are scheduled to receive the update in January.
Obviously, the update is nearly complete and is probably in testing. The update this user received was probably a testing build, perhaps because of the problem with his IMEI number. You probably shouldn’t go and restore your Galaxy Note5 in the hopes of receiving the update right after because that almost certainly won’t work.
Samsung sure is working hard to lose the reputation it has built up over the years of pushing out slow updates. While we still aren’t sure when the update will go out to users, it’s certainly a good sign and for now, Samsung seems to be on track to release the much anticipated update to users on time.
Both Samsung and T-Mobile haven’t released a statement regarding this incident, which pretty much confirms that this was a mistake and the update hasn’t begun rolling out.
