Everyone is impatiently waiting for the Android Marshmallow update to reach their smartphones, or, at least, to know with a high degree of certainty when this will finally happen. Samsung owners definitely didn’t hold their breaths knowing how the South Korean company usually takes its time before rolling out new software updates, but it seems that the tech giant finally started to deliver the new version of the operating system to certain models and others are on the list to get the update as well. According to SamsungViet and SamMobile Samsung will roll out the software update to of its models in the next few months, and they are going to do this in a certain order.
The Galaxy note was the first device to get the Android Marshmallow update, and it seems that it will be followed by the Galaxy Note 5, the Note Edge, the Galaxy Note 4, Note 4 Duos, the Galaxy S6, S6 Edged, S6 Edge Plus, the S6 Edge Duos and the Galaxy S5, S5 NEO and S5 LTE-A in the first quarter of the next year. Other devices, including the Galaxy Alpha, the Galaxy Tab A, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will get the software update in the second quarter of 2016.
The Galaxy S7, which will probably be launched in the second quarter of 2016 will most likely come with Android 6.0 or later out of the box, so it won’t need a software update. The new version of the operating system comes with a number of new features, including enhanced security features and power saving ones. Everyone is eagerly waiting for the software update to reach their smartphones, so if you have one of the aforementioned Samsung Galaxy models, at least now you know when the update will reach you.
