Samsung has been tight-lipped when it comes to delivering updates to its devices. Nonetheless, recent reports suggest that the company has been working on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy Note 5 while also preparing for the release of the Galaxy S7 Edge.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 edge+ and original S6 duo users may no longer have to wait for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update as news about the Android 6.0.1 coming just surfaced. According to SamMobile, a tipster sent photos of the Galaxy Note 5 running on Android 6.0.1.
The tipster also noted that the Note 5 is just running on the test firmware, meaning a final version will soon be release via over-the-air. Nonetheless, people will already see the interface changes similar to those received by the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge including the white and blue status bar theme. To date, people still have mixed feelings about the theme update.
Apart from the theme, people should experience a smoother interface following the update. However, for those still waiting on when the Android 6.0 Marshmallow will reach their devices, they may have to wait for further announcements. Released schedules vary from region to region and per carrier.
Although Samsung has yet to complete the update of intended devices for Marshmallow, the company is reportedly working on releasing more devices. According to a report from Gotta Be Mobile, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge for the United States already cleared FCC. This means that the devices already passed through the final tests before they are sold on the American market. This also confirms the release of the units. According to the listing, the Galaxy S7 Edge will feature a large 3,600 mAh battery, comparatively bigger than the Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 Edge+. Other specs expected include: 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display (5.5-inch Galaxy S7 Edge), 8-core Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM (Samsung Exynos outside the US) and 32/64GB storage options with a micro-SD slot for expansion among others.
