Verizon's variant of Samsung Galaxy Note 4 can now be installed with the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. According to GSM Arena, the firmware carries build number N910VVRU2CPD1.

The firmware is available via an Over-the-Air update process, but similar to other OTA releases, it may take a while for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to hit all the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 units. This means that some owners might have to wait longer than the others for the automatic OTA notification to arrive.

However, those itching to see if the latest Marshmallow firmware is ready for the device can so manually through the smartphone's Settings menu. Simply navigate to "Settings," tap on "About Phone" usually found on the bottom of the menus provided, and then choose "Software Updates." For the system to start scanning any available firmware updates, choose the "Check for Updates" option.

For those who wish to stay connected all the time, one of the fitting features to experience upon installing the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update on Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is Wi-fi Calling, which allows users to "make and receive calls over a Wi-Fi network" especially when there's no cellular signal, the support page explains. The feature is available without any cost and owners can use their own mobile number to make and receive calls. "Wi-Fi calls to US numbers are free, even while traveling outside the US," the post added.

The latest Android Marshmallow update also brings in improvements to the smartphone's audio through Ultra-High-Quality Audio- UHQA (Hi-Fi Audio) feature. Accordingly, this audio technology enhances the richness and detail of select music files. Speaking of Music, installing the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update on the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will uninstall Amazon Music, reducing bloatware on the phablet.

The Samsung phablet first became available at Verizon in October 2014, according to Gotta Be Mobile. Describing the device, Verizon's official product page for its Samsung Galaxy Note 4 reads as follows.

"Big. Bold. Brilliantly distinctive. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 offers features to improve how you live, work and play. Dive into the dynamic Quad HD Super AMOLED display. Do more with Samsung's most precise and useful S Pen. Take impressive selfies with the wide-angle 3.7-megapixel front camera.
