The Samsung Galaxy S6 will likely receive its biggest update yet with the upcoming Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Although Samsung has not made any official announcements yet, leaked information reveals a list of Samsung devices set to receive the Android M update.
According to a report by Master Herald, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will get their biggest update in the form of Android 6.0 Marshmallow six months after the devices were launched. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were released running Android Lollipop on board. The report further stated that the Android M update will be bigger on Samsung's most recent flagships than its older units.
