Samsung Galaxy A9
The A9 SM-A9000 has just become the first Galaxy A device to receive Android Marshmallow, with Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 expected to get updated soon as well.

Samsung Galaxy A9 was released in early 2016, and now its firmware has just been updated to the latest Android release, 6.0.1 Marshmallow. However, it looks like this phablet received two updates in the last week, both being based on Android 6.0.1.

The latest firmware for the Samsung Galaxy A9 phablet carries build number A9000ZCU1BPE2 and comes with the usual new features and changes delivered by Marshmallow - Google Now on Tap, new emojis, granular app permissions, Doze mode, as well as various minor tweaks and fixes. In addition to these, the new firmware also delivers the latest security updates and an overall refresh of Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

Unfortunately, China is the only market that got the Galaxy A9 until now, so the update is only rolling out via OTA in that area. The next Galaxy A handsets to receive Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow are the Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016), but there is no official information about it at this time.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
