Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge get a beta Marshmallow update
Samsung handsets never got their minor Android updates soon after Google unleashed them, and sometimes they even skipped some updates for certain devices. Fortunately, it looks like owners of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets will get Marshmallow sooner than expected. Both devices have just received a beta firmware based on Android 6.0.1, so most chances are to see the final release coming out before the end of the month.
Although this is a minor release and still in beta, the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge comes with quite a few changes, including the following:
- improved Private Mode quick settings in the status bar
- new emojis
- enhanced notification panel icons
- "Install overnight" update option (installs an update between 2 and 5 AM)
- new interface for Edge screen settings
Unfortunately, there is no official info about the release date of the final Marshmallow update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge yet. We will keep an eye on this and report as soon as we hear the news, so stay tuned.
