Sprint Galaxy Note 5 Updates to version N920PVPS3BPL1, It's Not Nougat Yet

if your Galaxy Note 5 is from Sprint, then you might already got an update earlier today.  This update will bump the device current Android OS to build version N920PVPS3BPL1 from the previous release version N920PVPS3BPK1.  The update is still in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow base, and it's not the Android 7.0 Nougat update that we've been waiting for.  Instead, the update is the monthly Security Maintenance Released (SMR) to which now brings the December Android security patches.

Speaking of the Nougat updates, it may arrived later in between March to April 2017.  The Galaxy Note 5 will only receive the Nougat update right after the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, to which reportedly starts to roll out this month or until February 2017.

Again, this release is another batch of security patch updates and it does not bring any noticeable adverse effect to the device.  It’s not a Nougat update either, but might be the preparation for the said upcoming latest Android version.
