Galaxy Note 5 owners on T-Mobile should keep an eye out for a software update today, multiple users have reported that Magenta is sending out a new software update for Samsung’s latest and greatest phablet. As always the update will arrive over-the-air and shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours to go live across all regions of the United States.

I’m sure many Galaxy Note 5 owners are anxiously waiting to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow on their devices but they shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet, the update that T-Mobile is sending out today isn’t Marshmallow but an incremental update that retains the device at Lollipop.

It’s not clear right now when Samsung will have Marshmallow ready for the flagship handsets that it has released this year, previous reports suggest that the updates may not arrive until early next year.

As far as this update is concerned it’s said to bring some improvements for virtual reality, the handset does work with Samsung’s Gear VR headset, as well as enhancements for Samsung At Work. Galaxy Note 5 owners should also expect battery life improvements once they have installed the update aside from the usual slew of performance and stability related fixes that we find in almost every other update.
