After months following its release, Samsung has finally been able to extend the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to several of its devices. Even more good news for Samsung Galaxy users, a new roadmap was spotted detailing the schedule for the release of the update on specific models.
OEMs continue to catch up with Android updates. This time, Samsung has been working on the completion of the Android 6.0 release to its Galaxy units. Previously, it was reported that the Korean tech giant has started seeding the firmware to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones.
Now, Phone Arena reports new information from a source familiar with Samsung’s plans on specific dates for the Android 6.0 release. The schedule is as follows:
- Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – March 2016
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ – March 2016
- Samsung Galaxy S6 – March 2016
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge – March 2016
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – April 2016
- Samsung Galaxy Note Edge – April 2016
- Samsung Galaxy S5 – May 2016
- Samsung Galaxy Alpha – June 2016
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8″ – May 2016
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7″ – May 2016
Other non-flagship Samsung devices will also receive the update including the Samsung Galaxy S7 2016 edition. Nonetheless, it would still be best for people to check with their regional units and carriers on exact release since access can vary per area and network.
Samsung is not only busy with updating its devices; it has also been working on several releases. After the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge launches, the company is reportedly working on the Galaxy Note 6. According to Blasting News, the device may feature 256 GB UFS 2.0 memory chips. This is touted as revolutionary but Samsung has not confirmed official details of the Note 6 yet. All information must be taken with a grain of salt.
