Roadmap reveals when certain Samsung Galaxy devices will be updated to Marshmallow

Samsung logoIf you own a Samsung Galaxy handset, what could be better than discovering a roadmap that shows you when to expect your device to be updated to Android 6.0, Marshmallow. This morning, we have such a roadmap to show you. The map is broken down into two distinct phases. Starting with those handsets in Phase One, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ are scheduled to be the first two Samsung Galaxy devices to receive Android 6.0. The updates should arrive next month.

The next pair, the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will both be updated this January. In February, you should expect to receive Android 6.0 on your Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and Samsung Galaxy Note 4. These are all of the Galaxy handsets that have a scheduled date for their Android 6.0 update. Two more handsets in Phase One, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung Galaxy Alpha, are awaiting technical approval.

All of the phones in Phase 2 are also awaiting approval. These models include the Samsung Galaxy A8, Samsung Galaxy A7, Samsung Galaxy A5, Samsung Galaxy A3, Samsung Galaxy E7 and Samsung Galaxy E5.

The Android 6.0 update includes new features such as Doze, which recognizes when your phone is idle and shuts down background apps, putting your phone in a deep sleep and increasing standby time. Google On Tap brings you contextual search results, depending what is on your screen. And with Marshmallow, instead of having to approve a number of permissions for an app in one fell swoop, permission is given on an individual basis, allowing you to run an app while still denying access to certain features of your phone.
