Samsung has yet to complete the rollout of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a range of its devices. According to new reports, two of Samsung’s Galaxy phones, the Galaxy J7 and the Galaxy A3 (2016), are now in line to receive the update.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Android 6.0 Update
It has always taken OEMS quite a while to catch up with their Android update releases. As companies and carriers still need to tweak the code to their offerings, some take months to roll out the firmware. Fortunately, they do not stop until all intended devices have been updated. This time, it appears that Samsung has started updating its Galaxy J7 and Galaxy Galaxy A3 (2016) devices with possible promise of the A8 following suit.
According to International Business Times, the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) launched in China is still waiting for the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update although its 2015 counterpart has started receiving the update via OTA (over-the-air) in Russia. It will come off as a surprise to see that the 2016 version of the device including those released in the United States and Korea have the updated firmware, but Chinese units still need to be updated.
Nonetheless, the update should come soon since the Galaxy J7 (2015) in Russia has started receiving the firmware. The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the said device requires around 1.04GB, so people may need to free up their space to make way for the upgrade.
Samsung Galaxy A3 Android 6.0 Update
According to GSM Arena, the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2016) is not receiving the update yet, but the manual has been upgraded in line for the new firmware. It should be a matter of time before people see the OTA Android 6.0 Marshmallow update release to the Galaxy A3. Similar to other Android updates, the Android 6.0 update for the Galaxy J7 and A3 also offers usual treats like the Now on Tap, App permissions and Doze among others. People will also get the latest version of the TouchWiz.
