The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will reportedly launch this February seeking to capture the market it once lost. According to Gotta Be Mobile, Samsung’s recent patent application suggests that Samsung is preparing a new stylus support for the Note 6. Other features expected include an S-Pen that may soon double as a kickstand and that the device will come with a bigger battery, P67 dust and water resistance. The SD slot could also make a comeback considering how many were disappointment of its lack thereof in the Galaxy Note 5.
In line with the upcoming release comes the continuous seeding of Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a number of Samsung devices. According to a new report from SamMobile, Samsung has started seeding the Marshmallow firmware to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge units in Poland. This does not come as a surprise since the region has always been the first to receive access to updates apart from South Korea. T-Mobile Poland posted on Twitter:
“Android #marshmallow is already on the way to our Samsung #s6 and #s6Edge.” The translation may not make sense to most but it does support the rollout of the Android 6.0 update to both devices in the region.
The report also noted that while Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge device in South Korea may have gotten the update already, there are also rumors that the update was put on hold. People will have to wait for further instructions on when they can get the update. As with other updates, it is best to check with the network or carrier for final schedule.
