Samsung has reportedly started rolling out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy S6 edge+ outside South Korea, giving a hint that other devices like the Galaxy J5, Galaxy J7, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy A7 and others may receive it soon as well.
The South Korean technology giant has released the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy S6 edge+ only in the home country until now.
The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update has been seeded to the Galaxy S6 edge+ in Iraq, especially the ones with the model number SM-G928C, according to SamMobile. The report went on to say that the update file weighs over 1GB and the update takes the firmware version to G928CXXU2BPB8.
The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge were the first devices to receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, and it didn't come as a surprise as Samsung released the firmware beta programme to these devices for testing.
A report by SamMobile has claimed that the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920C) with build number N920CXXU2BPB6 has received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update in Cambodia, but one has to take it with a pinch of salt as Samsung is yet to announce the firmware update for the device.
So, when can owners of Samsung devices like the Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, Galaxy E7, Galaxy E5 and Galaxy J2 expect the firmware?
Samsung said during the release of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge that the firmware will be rolled out to other devices soon, but didn't say when. So, some devices may get it soon, while others may receive after months.
Samsung devices that are expected to get the firmware update are the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Tab S2, Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, Galaxy Tab S2 8, Galaxy Tab S 8.4, Galaxy Tab A 9.7, Galaxy Tab A 8, Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A5, Galaxy A3, Galaxy E7, Galaxy E5, Galaxy J7, Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J2.
