Samsung starts Android 6.0 Beta program for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

Samsung logoIf you thought Samsung is close to releasing Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its high-end Galaxy smartphones, you would be disappointed to learn the South Korean company hasn't yet begun testing the update.

One of the largest handset makers in the world, Samsung, hasn't even announced customers if and when their Galaxy smartphones will receive the highly anticipated Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade.

Even though we have many sources leaking information about Samsung's Android 6.0 Marshmallow update roadmap, there's no telling whether or not these rumors are accurate.

The good news is Samsung is now looking for testers who are supposed to offer their feedback on Android 6.0 Marshmallow builds the South Korean company will make available to them in the coming weeks.

There's also some bad news, as the beta program is only available in South Korea, and it doesn't look like there will be another one available in another country for the time being, SamMobile reports.

Samsung's South Korean branch has officially announced that it is now looking for beta testers for Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.

Customers who purchased their Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones from either KT or LG U+ carriers will be allowed to participate in the beta program.

Apparently, Samsung plans to “enhance the software experience by taking real-world usage into account.” If that's the case, can we hope for less bloatware on our Samsung Galaxy smartphones? We sure hope for it, but there's little chance that it will happen.

The beta testing program will run through January 18, so at least we know that we won't be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow update until then.

It's unclear what will happen with Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, but there's a high chance they will be added to the beta program later on.
