Samsung Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy J3 to get Marshmallow

Samsung Galaxy S5 mini smartphone to get Android Marshmallow firmware soon

After a long wait for the S5 mini users and a very short one for Galaxy J3 ones, they all finally get the Android Marshmallow update.

Samsung Galaxy J3 launched with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop in India less than three months ago, but the versions selling in the US these days apparently come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board.  On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 mini has been around for a longer period of time, but its latest Android 5.1.1-based firmware is about a year old.

Fortunately, the time for change has arrived - Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini has been spotted at the WiFi Alliance. The affordable Galaxy J3 phone will get the latest major Android version across multiple markets where it launched with Android Lollipop.

Samsung did not confirm anything yet, but the features of the new firmware should not come as a suprise - Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, multiple tweaks and fixes, as well as the latest security patches available. We will get back to this update as soon as we hear more about it, so stay tuned.
