Android 6 Marshmallow |

Samsung has revealed very little so far about specific devices, although it is fairly safe to assume that the firm’s key flagships; the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 will all be updated to Marshmallow. We’re also expecting multiple members of the Galaxy Alpha or Galaxy A series to get the boost, and probably the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4/Galaxy Note Edge too. Still, that’s all speculation on our part and we should await further info from Samsung.

What Samsung has revealed is that it will be implementing Android Marshmallow on its devices. We’ve already seen the firm post the below infographic about which “Android M” features will be making their way into TouchWiz, so that’s as much confirmation as anyone needs that it IS happening…at some point. And probably soon too, historically Samsung is a company that updates software quite quickly.

What’s the deal with Samsung’s Android Marshmallow update schedule? It’s a good question — Samsung is after all the biggest phone maker on the planet. Inconsistency is the word of the day when it comes to Samsung’s track record for Android updates; sometimes it is great, other times not so much.

“The Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ will get the Android 6.0 upgrade in February or March, with the phablet version set to receive it first,” reports BGR. “The Galaxy Note 5 is also slated for a February release, although specific release dates aren’t available at this time. The Galaxy S5, meanwhile, will be updated to Android 6.0 either in March or April, just like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge.”

Reputable Samsung source SamMobile claims to have heard from its inside tipsters about Samsung’s plans for a Marshmallow update. According to the report, there’s quite an extensive list of devices which will be bumped up to the latest build. As per the report, the list is not definitive, as it’s unofficial at this stage. When Samsung makes things official there may be more devices on the list, or a few might get dropped.

According to reports dating December 7, Samsung has already started seeding the Android Marshmallow update to Galaxy Note 4 handsets in Hungary, implying that a Europe-wide rollout may follow shortly. The word comes via Napidroid, which claims that one of its editorial staff, based in Hungary, had the update come through on his Galaxy Note 4 handset. This is all a bit odd though, as we wrote above, although Samsung’s rollout schedule is due to start in December, it’s not supposed to begin with the Note 4, which actually isn’t supposed to update until February 2016. So what’s going on? Well it could be some weird fluke, or a schedule reshuffle, or that the editor’s phone is some kind of unlocked test unit which got updated by accident. At any rate we will certainly keep an eye out for reports of the update spreading.
