    A new version of Samsung's update schedule has leaked and it looks like sad news for Galaxy Note 5 owners. If the intel is accurate then the Note 5 won't get the Android 6/Marshmallow update in late Q4 of 2015 after-all. According to the leaked info, it has been pushed back to Q1 of 2016.

    In fact, taking a look at this revised schedule it seems most of Samsung's newer devices won't get the Marshmallow update until the beginning of next year. We will keep an eye out for additional confirmation of this intel, but for now, it's probably safe to assume this is accurate.

    Hopefully this means that they're taking their time to fully bake the update.

    I just saw a headline on another site that (I think) VZW is pushing out the currently monthly security patch to the Note 5, S6, Edge/+ now. If that's the case, at least the security patches will be up-to-date while owners of those devices await Marshmallow.

    Q1= late March.
    Late April for At&t customers
    Early May for VZW customers.

    I had seen something about google helping samsung with software and touchwiz. If this is the cause for the delay this may be beneficial for those users if that is true.
