The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge have been included in a beta testing program and the users were able to test out the latest firmware update. Now, the users in South Korea are starting to receive the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update on the two flagships, while other handsets are waiting to be upgraded in February. Also, this update will roll out to HTC’s latest metal-clad mid-range One A9, while the One M9 and M8 will run on 6.0 Marshmallow.
After all Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge flagships will be upgraded to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow in South Korea, the next devices that will receive this update will be the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5, then more Samsung models will jump on the bandwagon. Recently, a so called leaked document of Samsung’s roadmap for the release of 6.0 Marshmallow update for seven of its phones has created confusion among the users, but we told them to not take this screenshot for granted, as most likely it’s photoshopped and it could be the second attempt of the same person who released a similar document back in October, but in which, the release of the new firmware was supposed to happen earlier, in December.
HTC has reportedly started updating its One A9 metal-clad handset, which was released last fall with 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It seems that the unlocked version of this upper-mid-range device is receiving the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow firmware and Spring is the fist carriers who’s rolling out the update, which carries the software version 1.57.651.1. The users will enjoy the new emojis, the improved camera features, the tweaks that will extend the battery life and the WiFi calling functionality.
Not all Spring One A9 owners have received the update and we suggest them to manually check and download the firmware, by following instructions given by HTC on its official website. As for the One M9 and M8, Sprint has started sending out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The AT&T version of the HTC One M9 will be updated in a few weeks, according to VP of Product Management Mo Versi.
