Samsung has been working on releasing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to all its intended devices. Now that an updated version has been released, the Android 6.0.1 edition, the company is reportedly releasing the firmware to its Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge units.
Although Samsung announced the release of the Android 6.0 update to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, it appears that it is just this week that the update has started really rolling out to the mentioned devices. According to a report from SamMobile, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update version will now be rolling out to Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) and Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925F) models in the United Kingdom through Vodafone.
The update will be released via the build number XXU3DPB8. Following the release of the update, it is expected that the Android 6.0.1 update will continue to roll out to other networks and eventually to unlocked units.
As with other Android 6.0 updates, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge variants should expect an updated visual design including a new version of Samsung’s internet browser, Google Now on Tap, Cross App and improved permission control. For those who have not received the notification, they can also check the phone’s Settings > About device > Software updates.
On top of releasing updates, Samsung has also been busy lately, especially since it just announced the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge series. The Galaxy S7 features 5.1-inch display including 2,560×1,440-pixel resolution and 12MP primary camera. IT also runs with quad-core Snapdragon 820 complete with 4GB RAM. Users have the option to choose between 32GB or 64GB variants. The Galaxy S7 Edge comes with a larger display at 5.5 inches and larger battery at 3,600mAh battery. While the devices are not really a jump from the Samsung lineup, many analysts feel that Samsung is doing something right by addressing the previous flaws of its offerings with the new S7 series.
