It seems that the percent of Android devices running on the latest Marshmallow version is increasing. After its launch in October, many mobile phone manufacturers have waited a few months before they started to roll out this update, and Samsung was one of the companies that didn’t rush to make the step. However, the Galaxy S7 Edge already came preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but now, the model number G935F is getting the latest Marshmallow 6.0.1 firmware with the build number XXU1APE9. On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 and Note connected to Verizon will run on 6.0 Marshmallow.
As we’ve told you above, the Galaxy S7 Edge with the model number G935F is getting updated to Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 XXU1APE9, which can be installed by using the Samsung KIES desktop tool or by heading to the phablet’s Settings> About Device, where users will Check for Software Update. If users are notified that the Marshmallow 6.0.1 firmware is available for their device, they must connect to a wireless network before they start the download process. Also, they must make sure that the battery has 50 percent left of juice, because if the battery dies while installing the new update, the phone may be bricked.
T-Mobile has already released Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to Samsung’s Galaxy S5, while AT&T doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to do the same. Thankfully, Verizon is respecting its subscribers and for the Galaxy S5 users has released software version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1, which “brings the latest Android Marshmallow OS along with Wi-Fi Calling, App icon update, Ultra High Quality Audio and Android for Work”. The Galaxy Note 4 users, on the other hand, are getting software version MMB29M.N910VVRU2CPD1 and it has the same changelog as the update for the Galaxy S5.
We remind you that the new Marshmallow update has introduced many new features and we’ll mention Google Now on Tap, Doze (battery saver mode) and App permissions.
