Android 6.0 Marshmallow was released three months ago and it’s already running on a few Motorola, HTC and LG devices, but Samsung is keeping its fans in suspense, because none of its smartphones have been upgraded yet. The users shouldn’t be too worried, because the list of seven devices that will receive the update has been leaked and moreover, there were specified the months when that will happen.
The phones in question are the Galaxy S5, Note 5, S6 Edge+, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6, Note 4 and Note Edge are the devices that have been approved to receive the Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the first phase. The source who leaked the document is nicknamed XTECH LEAKS and he emailed the screenshot to Mobipicker. The image shows the list of smartphones (exactly in the order we’ve wrote above) that will be upgraded to Marshmallow and the rollout schedule.
According to the leaked schedule, the Galaxy S5 SM-N900G will receive the update between March and April, the Galaxy Note 5 SM-N920G will receive it next month, just like the Galaxy S6 Edge+ SM-N928G, while the Galaxy S6 Edge SM-G925I and Galaxy S6 SM-G920I are programmed to receive the update from February to March. Lastly, the Note 4 SM-N9910G and Note Edge SM-N915G will be also upgraded from March to April.
However, in parallel, Samsung has seeded the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow beta to its S6 and S6 Edge flagships and when the testing will be over, the two devices will be the first ones to run on this version. Android 6.0.1 is not a major update, so it will make its appearance in the near future.
As for the leaked image, you shouldn’t take it for granted, because it might have been sent by XTECH LEAKS in order to create confusion. There is no signature on the document, just Samsung’s logo at the top and below is the title: “Android 6.0 Update Guide (Phase. 1)”.
