Lenovo has finally started rolling out Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) update for the K3 Note smartphone in India. The update also adds TheaterMax support for an immersive VR experience. This feature is present in Vibe K4 Note, Vibe X3 and the latest K5 Plus smartphones. The smartphone was launched running Android 5.0 (Lollipop) in India, so it is directly getting the Android 6.0 update, skipping Android 5.1 (Lollipop).
According Lenovo’s official Android Upgrade Matrix, the Marshmallow update has been rolled out earlier than the expected April release, but it is yet to confirm the roll out time frame for A7000, A7000 Plus, A7010 / VIBE K4 Note, VIBE Shot, VIBE X3, VIBE S1 and VIBE P1 smartphones.
Android 6.0 concentrates on App Permissions, Web Experience, App Links and Power & Charging. It also brings new Doze battery saving feature that uses motion detection to cut off background activity when the phone is in standby, but it will still wake up for important events like alarms.
The Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) over-the-air (OTA) update for the Lenovo K3 Note is 1.65GB in size and also includes Android security patch for March 2016. In case the download is slow or if you have not received the update, download the direct OTA file (From S205_151118 to S322_160314) from here (From S121_150813 to S322_160314) and flash it manually using recovery.
