Samsung fans all over the world have been waiting for Samsung to release the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, and it seems that the tech giant is finally doing so for some of its models. This March, the spotlight is on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 and S6 Edge, which are set to receive the much-awaited updates in many parts of the globe.
Updates Around the World
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android 6.0.1 is set to be released in certain parts of Asia (specifically Cambodia and South Korea) and the Middle East. T-Mobile and AT&T in the United States have confirmed that they will soon roll out the updates for their Galaxy Note 5, while Telus and Bell in Canada have revealed that they will push through with the update this March.
Those who own the Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge, meanwhile, don’t have to worry since they’ll also receive updates pretty soon. In fact, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates have been released in some parts of the world like India, Iraq, Russia, and the United Kingdom as well as certain European countries like Germany, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic, and the Netherlands. This March, the update will find its way in Canada and the United States, with Bell, Telus, and T-Mobile saying that they will roll out the update soon.
Why is the update so important?
Android Marshmallow has many similarities with Android Lollipop (its predecessor) in terms of navigation, design, and other factors, making people feel like it’s not really worth the fuss. But, for those who own the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 and S6 Edge, downloading the update is highly important if you want to enjoy the new features that the Android OS has to offer and make the most of your device.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Android 6.0.1 update, for example, will provide users with new emojis, additional Private Mode settings, and more visible icons in the notification panel. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Android 6.0.1, meanwhile, supports Wi-Fi calling, updates the look of folders and app icons, and allows devices to have the Doze feature (which puts the phone to sleep when not in use and conserves its battery).
Checking for updates
If you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, S6 or S6 Edge and your network has confirmed that it will release the Android 6.0.1 update for your phone, just wait for the OTA notification to arrive. You can also manually check for it by going to your phone’s settings, tapping “About phone”, going to “System updates”, then clicking on “Check for update”.
