Android 6.0 and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow Release Imminent For Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Note 4, Note Edge, S6
Samsung continues to roll out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a number of its devices. While some devices may have already received their updates, Samsung’s update timeline for its other devices have been in a bind. Thankfully, it appears more units will receive the update this first quarter of the year.Advertisement
Initially, Samsung’s first roadmap showed the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ as the first in line. The date was set last December 2015 while Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were intended for a January release and the Note 4 and Note 4 Edge for the a February release. This did not happen.
Thankfully, a new roadmap from XTECH Leaks (via Mobi Picker) shows that people may no longer have to wait. According to the document, the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ will receive the Marshmallow first this February. Additionally, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are scheduled around February or March. Other devices like the Galaxy S5, Note 4 and Note Edge should receive the update around March or April.
Furthermore, there are also reports saying that Samsung has already started working on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. Some of its devices are already being tested for it. Since the Android 6.0.1 version is a not major upgrade, users should see the update rolling out in no time. Delays should also be less likely.
According to SamMobile, Samsung has already released the Android 6.0.1 update to a Galaxy S5 device. However, the update to the device was only accidental. A user in France reported receiving the OTA update for a Galaxy S5 unit with model number SM-G900F. Many think of this as interesting since the device is already almost two years old since its launch in 2014. It should take no time for the software to be released officially to all qualified devices. Samsung has not provided any details about the matter. Users are advised to wait for further announcements from their networks.
