Samsung appears to be getting ready to roll out the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to its Galaxy A3 (2016). The company has released the new firmware to all flagship devices but the Galaxy A9 is the only handset from the "A" series to have received it so far.

The South Korean electronics giant has uploaded a new version of the Galaxy A3 (2016) user manual to its Download Center, according to SamMobile. The report claimed that the user manual could have been revised to include instructions on certain functions after Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is installed. 

It is not known when Samsung will release the firmware to the Galaxy A3 (2016), but it usually takes place a couple of days after an upgraded user manual is released. So, owners of the device may expect the roll out of the OS in the next few days.

The Galaxy A9 is the only handset from "A" series that has received the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update so far. The Galaxy A8 is expected to get the firmware soon, as it has already been granted Wi-Fi Certification. The Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) are also yet to receive the OS update.

The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update brings features like Doze, Now on Tap, Runtime Permissions and Google Now on Tap.
