LG and HTC were more diligent than Samsung and started rolling out the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow a while ago. Recently, some of the Galaxy flagships started receiving the firmware in some regions of the world and now the UK users who are connected to Vodafone are enjoying the new features of Marshmallow.
According to the latest reports, Vodafone will roll out the Android 6.0.1 update to its Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) and S6 Edge (SM-G925F), which will receive the build number XXU3DPB8 of the software. Soon, the unlocked versions of the two flagships will be upgraded as well.
At the end of 2015, Samsung started a beta-test program for the Marshmallow on several Galaxy S-series smartphones and recently, many reports from users in South Korea and the US said that the company has started rolling out the update. The four Samsung devices that received the Android 6.0.1 update are Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Note, but the owners of the latter phablet complained that after the upgrade, the battery started draining faster and there are compatibility issues with the Gear VR headset. Let’s hope that soon enough, Samsung will fix these problems and the Note 5 will run flawlessly.
The users in the UK who haven’t been notified yet that Marshmallow is available on their devices, can go to Settings > About Device > Software Updates and manually check for the update. Other UK carriers will roll out this firmware soon, most likely this will happen in March and all users will be happy.
A few days ago, Samsung has unveiled its latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge flagships, and they come pre-loaded with Marshmallow. While their design is similar to that of their predecessors, their bodies are protected against dust and water, a feature that was removed from the Galaxy S6. Also, their batteries are bigger: 3000mAh and 3600mAh, but the S7 Edge has a much larger screen of 5.5-inch. Also, the phones are powered by two variants of processors: Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 quad core formed from a dual-core 2.15 GHz and dual-core 1.6 GHz CPU and Exynos 8890 Octa core consisting of a quad-core 2.3 GHz and quad-core 1.6 GHz CPU. Both versions support 4GB of RAM and microSD card slots, which means that the internal memory of 32GB or 64GB can be expanded up to 200GB. Also, the rear camera has a resolution of 12MP and records 360-degree views.
