A new update has started rolling out for the Samsung Galaxy Note5. The update brings in battery life improvements, call stability and more.

The update has stated appearing on Singapore and Malaysian units for both the single SIM N920I and the dual SIM N9208 devices. The update is 144.28MB in size for the single SIM devices and around 185.18MB in size for the dual SIM variants.

The most important change is probably the improved battery life as well as the call stability. The Note5 already has better battery life than its siblings, the S6 and S6 edge but increase in battery life is always a welcome change. It also improves the call stability and brings around a few security fixes as well.

Apart from that there are likely to be a few performance fixes and perhaps a new feature or so but Samsung hasn’t released a changelog yet so we’ll have to wait and see. While it isn’t a major update, it does seem to be an important one that is beneficial to the user. At the moment, it is rolling out to Note5 units in South East Asia but should gradually make its way to Note5 units in other parts of the world as well.
