Samsung has today announced that the Marshmallow update for Galaxy device, with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge first in line to receive the update.
The update will bring all the great features of Android 6.0 to the phones, including Doze mode, Google Now On Tap and App Permissions. Samsung has also added in usability functions for the Galaxy S6 Edge, including the option to expand the edge panel to 550 pixels wide, adding in even more ways to make use the phone, by allowing a larger viewing area.
While Samsung has announced the update will be available globally, this is for unlocked handsets – i.e if you purchased your handset from a carrier, even outright, you still have to wait for their software update approval process to be completed. At this stage, neither Optus, Telstra or Vodafone even list the update on their respective software update sites, so it’s unclear when the update will begin distributing.
We’ve reached out to Samsung Australia for clarification and more information on when the update will be released and we’ll update if they have anything further to announce.
