Android 6 Marshmallow Update for Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5 Expected ‘Sooner Than Last Year’

Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Android 6 Marshmallow is officially available to download for Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and other Nexus devices. The Marshmallow OS update is still not yet available in the market for any other devices.

But owners of Samsung flagship devices may find some relief in the news that the Korean tech-company will also release the update, “sooner than last year’s” OS release. According to Android Geeks, since the Android 6.0 rollout isn’t as major as Lollipop, it should be out sooner.

Furthermore, since Google has limited the release of the software upgrade to one major update a year as opposed to two, Android device manufacturers such as Samsung can make the latest OS available quicker.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow update will be coming for Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 and of course the Galaxy S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, or Note Edge. The company should also be rolling out the update for the lower-range models as well. The latest OS for the most flagship Samsung devices is expected to arrive around the same date.

Some of the most noteworthy features arriving with the latest OS from Google include app permissions, with which users can give apps the access to certain functions only when required as opposed to giving permission for access to all the required information and functionalities at once, when the app is being downloaded.

Other features include the Doze Mode and of course, the much talked-about Google Now on Tap. The Doze mode assists with saving-up the battery life.

And for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy Note 4 devices, users can enjoy the Deep linking feature as well as the support for fingerprint reader.

For developers who are eager to experiment and willing to try their hands on the latest operating system, they can grab the build from the official Google website.
