In a world, where Android Marshmallow is about as old a news as New Delhi being the capital city of India, it is only fitting with the state of Android phones that not even 10% of phones run the latest version of Android yet. While the likes of Motorola Moto X or Nexus phones were some of the first ones to get the update, major OEMs are still lagging behind. HTC rolled out Marshmallow update to the HTC M8 last week while there is no news for the users who own an unlocked version of the HTC M9. LG released the update to Marshmallow for those on LG G4 very recently and not really surprising but missing out is Samsung.
It is only today, that the Korean giants have announced that it would now be officially rolling out the Marshmallow update for its Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users. The news will come as a delight for Samsung Galaxy S6 users who are already fire fighting poor battery backup on their devices.
A soak test for the Beta of the update was successful in parts of Korea and the United Kingdom and post that, it is being globally rolled out. The Galaxy S6 Edge will get several new enhanced features for the edge screen as well as a more enhanced edge screen with a more robust Apps Edge. All the users will get Doze Mode, Individual App permissions as well as the visual overhaul that Marshmallow promises.
Samsung has announced that updates to other devices will follow and an announcement will be made in due course regarding the same.
