Samsung has launched two software updates for variants of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+.

Both upgrades are guaranteed to improve the devices' performances and provide Google's latest November 2015 security patches for Android, TechnoBuffalo reported. The Galaxy Note 5's text detection feature is also making a comeback in the update.

According to TechnoBuffalo, the update for the Galaxy Note 5 comes with build number N920GUBU2AOK3, and is currently applicable to the SM-N920C and SM-N920G variants of the handset. The Galaxy S6 edge+ update has the build number G928IDVU2AOK8, and is coming to the SM-G928C and SM-G928G iterations.

The updates for the Galaxy Note 5's SM-N920G model and both of the Galaxy S6 edge+'s models are also set to deliver battery life optimizations projected to steer clear from energy drains, the news outlet added. The Galaxy Note 5's OCR, the text detection feature incorporated into Smart Select, has returned as well after Samsung addressed the problem causing the device to lag after its display has been woken up from sleep mode.

These updates are released through over-the-air or via Samsung's KIES app, TechnoBuffalo noted. Users can also look for it manually in the software update section of the Settings app.

Samsung Galaxy Devices Receiving Final Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

Google's latest operating system, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, was first offered on select Nexus devices. Now, latest leaks hinted that the OS update for the Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy Note 4 is bound to come sooner than expected.

A Samsung Android 6.0 Marshmallow update roadmap revealed that the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ will be the first to get the update this month, Android Geeks reported. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge should be next in line in January 2016, followed by Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge in February 2016. Samsung's 2014 premium mobile devices, Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha, also belong to the list set to be upgraded to Android Marshmallow.

The tech giant is also reportedly waiting for approval to release Android Marshmallow for the Galaxy A8, Galaxy A7, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, Galaxy E7, and Galaxy E5, the news outlet listed.

It should be noted that the new OS upgrade will take its time to be rolled out to the Galaxy devices mentioned above, meaning the release will be gradual as it spreads to all users, Android Geeks wrote. The ETA depends on phone mode, region, and carrier.
