Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to start rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its 2015 flagship handsets, the update will then get held up at carriers who will announce their own release date, but apparently there has been a slip up and one T-Mobile users has ended up with what appears to be an early build of Marshmallow on his Galaxy Note 5.

Danon Brown, an XDA Developers forum user, says that he got the Marshmallow build on his Galaxy Note 5 after he used Samsung’s Odin PC software to restore the handset to its stock firmware.

Apparently instead of getting the most recent publicly available Lollipop build for his device he got MRA58K.N920TUVU2DOK5, the build number points towards Marshmallow as MRA58K denotes the stock Marshmallow update that Google released about a month ago.

He did post several screenshots claiming to show that he has indeed received this unreleased Marshmallow build and that it’s running on his handset. The possibility exists that all of this could be fake, which would warrant applause nonetheless because one would need to go to great lengths to make such an elaborate fake, or it could be real and we could very well be looking at an early build of Marshmallow for the Galaxy Note 5.

Brown has said that he’s going to extract a system dump, basically pull the build from the device and upload it online, but that hasn’t happened yet. You will get to know for sure if and when that happens.
