Samsung's Galaxy S6, S6 Edge phones get Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update

Samsung has begun trickling down Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow updates to Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones in Korea. This followed a short beta testing programme where users were asked to test Marshmallow's firmware and features.

However, the update is available only for Korean users and we have no information on when they'll be available for owners of Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones in the UK. As per reports, the more premium Galaxy S6 Edge+ phone doesn't get to feature Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as yet.

Samsung launched a beta testing programme for Android 6.0 Marshmallow back in December. The programme involved real world usage of the new OS on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones and was to continue till January 18. As per Sammobile, since Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Galaxy Note 5 phones share similar hardware as the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, doing separate beta testing of Android 6.0 Marshmallow on these phones won't be necessary.

Revealed: Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge sizes and specifications

Samsung is set to launch its new Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge phones with Android Marshmallow on board on February 21 at Mobile World Congress. If Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users in North America and Europe get hold of the latest Android OS in their existing phones ahead of the new launch, sales of the Galaxy S7 could suffer. It is thus generally believed that Samsung's decision to delay the Marshmallow rollout on existing devices is based on financial reasons.
