Verizon Wireless has announced that Android 6.0 is on its way to the Galaxy Note 5. That makes this the first Marshmallow-packing over-the-air update to hit the Note 5 in the US. Verizon has beat AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile to the punch. This is also the first Galaxy device on Verizon's network to make the leap.
When the update lands, Note 5 owners will get improved battery life thanks to Doze, a new look, and Wi-Fi Calling for HD Voice users.
As special as this accomplishment may be, it's still marking the arrival of Marshmallow over four months after the Nexus 5X and 6P gave people their first taste.
On the subject of agonizing waits, Verizon will soon deliver Marshmallow to another high-end phone. HTC Product Management VP Mo Versi said the HTC One M8 received technical approval today. The OTA will go out Monday, March 7th.
