The update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow is almost done. It has not yet reached users, but, almost in all probability, the launch will take place from October of this year, just after Google has launched the official presentation on board of new Nexus devices . These will be, including the oldest ones, the first to taste the honeys of this update. But what about the rest of smartphones ? Well, at this time we can indicate that the main equipment of most manufacturers will have the opportunity to update very soon to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Today we want to take a look at the update schedule that the Korean company Samsung could follow , although the truth is that it is still too early to venture about it. Next, these are the Samsung phones that will receive the update to Android 6.0 Lollipop .
This is an unofficial list that for now must be taken with some caution, since it does not include all the computers that can actually be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow . So, the first lucky ones are: Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 Duos, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Duos, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge , Samsung Galaxy Tab A and Samsung Galaxy Alpha . It is striking that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is not on the list, especially considering that it is an important and recent device in the Korean catalog. Most likely, we are facing aparticular or specific circumstance , which will be resolved shortly. We must not lose sight of the fact that we still have time until the official update arrives for the teams.
Knowing that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will not be released until October , the update will most likely not begin to reach users of Samsung devices until late 2015 or early 2016 . It is quite possible, on the other hand, that different mid-range equipment will be added to this list as the days go by. Be that as it may, we will be attentive to carry out the relevant updates and inform you about the update schedule provided by the manufacturer.
Users of Samsung devices that are going to update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow should not expect great news in the design section. Yes, significant functional changes are expected. Here we can mention the modification of permissions related to the widgets , the renewal of the icons in the status bar or the paint layer that the settings section has undergone. A visual voice answering menu is introduced , native support for SD cards, granular permissions control, Chrome Custom Tabs (a tool that allows you to integrate the Chrome browser into apps), customization of quick settings, native unlocking for fingerprints orAndroid Pay, the new and long-awaited Android payment system . Lastly, we have to mention the Doze mode , which should provide a considerable increase in battery performance.
