Google's recently released software Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 3 is expected to be rolled out as early as this December.

A report by PC-Tablet has claimed that Samsung may release Android 6.0 Marshmallow to Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy Note 4 by the end of this year before rolling it out to Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 3. 

The website went on to claim that Samsung devices on contract with major carriers in the US -- Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, and others – may get the firmware update when it is released to International counterparts.

A report by PC-Tablet said, "beta version of Android 6.0 build for Galaxy S6 is already ready". However, it is yet to be released for testing.
