Samsung has a multitude of devices, so it does not come as a surprise that it is still rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update even months from its release. According to new information, the Samsung Galaxy On7 unit and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo are now in line for the said firmware.
Samsung Galaxy On7 Android Update
Google promised to step up its efforts in pressuring Android manufacturers and partners in delivering its software updates more timely. However, until that time, people will have to be resolved with waiting for the release schedules. Samsung, on the other hand, has added two more units to its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update list. These include the Samsung Galaxy On7 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
The Galaxy On7 was launched in 2015 with a 2016 version expected to be released soon thanks to a benchmark result that revealed the unit. According to the benchmark result, Samsung is planning to release the 2016 version with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow already, so it comes naturally that the Korean tech giant will be updating the 2015 version.
Likewise, GSM Arena noted that this is a good thing, because it appears that Samsung is not forcing people to upgrade immediately even if they want to experience an updated Android system. So far, the update is available in Turkey, but it should be available to other markets soon.
The software update is available via the build number G600FXXU1APF8. It should be available over-the-air. People can check their phones manually if they have not received the prompt.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo Android Update
The Android 6.0.1 update is also now available for a version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo. The device is now one year old from its release. According to Phone Arena, those with model SM-G903F are now eligible for the Android update via the firmware version G903FXXU1BPD4. Do take note that the update is only available for the unlocked version of the device available in Southeast Europe.
