Android Marshmallow roll-out for Samsung devices continues as the Galaxy S6 Edge+ devices in India started getting the latest version 6.0.1 in India Friday. The update has already reached several devices, including Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge and Note 5 in recent days, and continues to reach more Samsung smartphones.

Mobipicker reported Friday that the South Korean tech giant's former flagship — the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (SM-G928GZSA) — is getting the new software over-the-air (OTA) in India and France, but Samsung hasn't officially confirmed it. Users of the 2015 flagship confirmed the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow roll-out in a series of updates on Twitter.

Since the official announcement on the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is yet to be made, there's no changelog available to compare what's new yet. But it is likely that the handset would receive the same features as the Galaxy S6 Edge, Gadgets360 reported.

Android Marshmallow brought enhanced edge screen and some new edge features in the Galaxy S6 Edge, which allowed users to increase the edge screen's resolution from 260 pixels to 550 pixels, enable more content to be displayed on the curved panel and add shortcut to the settings menu. The update also added a Quick tools panel, which included a ruler, compass and flashlight, and a new Tasks option to quickly access shortcuts to tasks, like set up an alarm or compose a message.

Other changes include an updated Touchwiz UI, improved security and Quick Connect. The Power Saving Mode is said to be improved for longer battery life, along with other tweaks like Doze, new app permissions, Google Now on Tap and some usual bug fixes.

Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for Galaxy S65 Edge+ is said to weigh 1.3GB. It is recommended users download the new software via Wi-Fi to avoid data overages. Ensure the phone's battery is charged 50 percent and above, and go to Settings > About device > Download updates to check if the new firmware is available for download.
