According to Samsung, the AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is about to receive the Android Marshmallow OS sometime soon. Unfortunately, it seems that the Android Marshmallow update for the HTC One M8 and the HTC One M9 from AT&T has been delayed.
It is good to know that the Android Marshmallow OS comes with many new features and changes, including the Google’s “Now On Tap”, which is one of the more useful changes that this operating system comes with. The Android Marshmallow also comes with other new features such as “Doze”, a mode that will make sure that the battery life of your device will last longer.
Google has also introduced app permissions control, a feature that allows users to install applications, but they will have the ability to deny or grant access to specific features and options, such as location, microphone or camera.
Since the Galaxy S6 will receive the Android Marshmallow OS on the AT&T mobile carrier, it is just a matter of time until the Galaxy S6 Edge will receive it, as well. However, AT&T and Samsung haven’t mentioned when exactly this will happen.
According to reports, it seems that some users have already started receiving the Android Marshmallow OS on their Samsung Galaxy S6 devices, which means that the OTA update is being released in stages. You can always check to see if an OTA update is available for your Android handset by heading to your device’s Settings->About Phone and tapping on the “Software Update” button.
We remind you that some of the Galaxy S6 specifications include:
- Display: 5.2-inch super AMOLED;
