Galaxy S6 Edge Ready for Android 6.0 Marshmallow in January 2016
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is hitting up the Marshmallow button as the new build has already been approved. The upgrade will come in January 2016, just right within the frame Samsung had announced last month.
A news site based in the United Kingdom revealed that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge model will be coming in the next few months. According to TimesNews.co.uk, the new Android build has now been approved and is ready for rollout.
However, the official release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow is not yet clear for models across the board. Per list from the tipster, the Galaxy S6 Edge model eligible for the upgrade has number SM- SM - G925I.
Carriers except for T-Mobile have not released any official statement whether or not they are releasing their versions of the supersized smartphone that soon. Nevertheless, all other 10 Galaxy S6 Edge models will surely be upgraded, as follows:
- SM - G925F
- SM - G925P
- SM - G925W8
- SM - G925S
- SM - G9250
- SM - G925K
- SM - G925L
- SC - 04G
- SM - G925R4
- SM - G925T
These models - all unlocked, retail, and carrier versions, have now been completely updated with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop software version. Expectedly, there are only a few tweaks that Google dev has to do with the software configurations of Lollipop to Marshmallow. However, it does not guarantee full and fitting compatibility right after agreed support for it. Initial Testing comes to the scene to make sure that the new build is set for rollout to identify its quality.
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow build will bring in useful new features and upgrades to the existing apps, system and software. These include the battery saver named Doze, better app permissions, app drawer, app links, smarter Google on Tap, comprehensive Android Pay, and the list goes on.
Marshmallow is also rolling out on Galaxy Note 5, Galax S6 Edge+ and Galaxy S6 Edge devices.
