The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 arrived back in 2015 with a 5.7-inch display size while being powered by Exynos 7420 Octa paired to a 4GB RAM.
The Note 5 arrived with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop right out-of-the-box and now, it's good news for all Note 5 users as Samsung has just kicked off the Nougat update to this phablet.
Users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in Canada are now receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The latest software update brings an overhauled UI as well as a slew of new features, and it looks like some of our maple syrup-loving neighbors up north have also started getting the update. This would make it the latest Galaxy Note device to be supported, which is no surprise taking into consideration how the Galaxy Note 7 had a fiery issue that caused it to be pulled out from the market. This flagship Galaxy Note device might be aged, but that does not mean it is out of the equation, either.
Galaxy Note 5 users who are keen to install Android 7.0 Nougat as quickly as possible can always opt to search for the new software build manually, which can be done through the Settings app of the device, i.e. the "Download software updates" option located in the "About device" section of Settings. Not only that, one will also be able to edit and markup PDFs, not to mention receiving superior battery management tools with an improved performance. Initial reports of the update launching in Canada emerged early on Monday, with both Bell and SaskTel being confirmed as carriers that are now distributing the software.
Are you a Galaxy Note 5 user on Bell or SaskTel? Users of the Sprint HTC One M9 are now being upgraded to the Android 7.0 Nougat OS! These builds will most likely also install the latest Android security patch.
