Verizon brings Marshmallow to the Galaxy Note Edge

Galaxy Note Edge users on Verizon are finally getting Samsung’s latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow upgrade. The release brings all the features you would expect from Google’s latest OS, plus some welcome TouchWiz improvements.

Verizon’s rollout comes just three weeks after Android 6.0.1 first reached unlocked Galaxy Note Edge handsets in Europe. It’s identical to the Galaxy Note 4’s release, and it comes with version number VRU2CPD1.

Marshmallow for the Note Edge includes features like Doze, which greatly improves battery life; Google Now on Tap, which gives you instant access to useful information anywhere; and Android’s new app permissions system.

It also bringsĀ some nice enhancementsĀ to TouchWiz that should improve performance and stability.

If you have a Galaxy Note Edge on Verizon, you can grab this update now by diving into the Software Update section in the Settings app. You may have already received a notification to inform you it’s available to download.

Bear in mind that the release might take a little while to reach all customers, and that you’ll need at least 50 percent battery life to install it.
