New Addition to Samsung Marshmallow Family
Google has revealed more details about its upcoming Android N firmware update, although not all OEMs have been able to upgrade their intended devices. Nonetheless, in an attempt to catch up to the slew of updates, manufacturers like Samsung are continuously adding devices to the Marshmallow fold. It is often an easier jump when most devices are updated to current mobile OS platforms.
According to Phone Arena, Samsung Galaxy A9 is finally receiving the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in China, the only country where the device was launched. Although it is possible for other people in other nations to get hold of the said device. The update is specifically rolling out to the unlocked version of the mobile unit. It is likely that carrier-branded models will receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the following weeks.
Several Android Update Versions
According to Android Authority, the software of the phone has been specifically updated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. There were also claims that the Samsung Galaxy A9 line has received several types of updates based on the Android 6.0.1. However, there are no clear indications about the difference between the two.
As with other Android updates, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy A9 offers treats like Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, native fingerprint reader support, granular permissions and much more. Users are advised to connect to a secure and reliable WiFi or cellular connection before updating. Devices must also be charged fully to avoid problems.
