Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates reportedly approved by Samsung and await carrier release
posted by Michael H. / Jan 25, 2016, 4:37 PM
original leaked roadmap had the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ as the first devices planned to get Marshmallow as soon as December 2015, with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in January 2016, and the Note 4 and Note 4 Edge in February. That obviously never happened, though we did see a leak of the Note 4 Marshmallow update in December along with beta tests for the updates. Though, you might notice that we're now closing in on the end of January and we still haven't seen the expected updates.The
A new roadmap claims that we won't have to wait too much longer though. According to the leaked document, the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ are still planned to be the first devices to get Marshmallow, and the new ETA is February. After that, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are slated for the February/March time frame, while the Galaxy S5, Note 4 and Note Edge are all pushed to March/April.
Time will tell if this leak is any more accurate than the last ones. However, rumor has it that all of the updates have been approved by Samsung and are now just waiting on carrier testing before getting released to users.

Yay, maybe that'll cheer up 80% of the people on this site who seem very angry and bitter all the time!

Don't worry, they will continue being bitter and angry anyway when their carrier delays the update by half a year.

I'm with T-Mobile. I expect I will get the update by April at the latest. Verizon? well they wont for at least another 3 months. again this is the downside of baking in apps. Samsung needs to work with carriers to make their apps available on the play store, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

It won't matter. Even on lollipop, my Note 5 is the best phablet sized smartphone in the world.

Had a Note5 for a week before exchanging it for an S6 Edge+, mainly due to the fact that I never use the stylus and just prefer the curved display look. But I fully agree. Not a single hiccup during my time with Note5, and it's the same with my Edge+. Definitely the most solid, fast, and fluid devices Samsung has ever made. I can't imagine how much better they will get once we have Marshmallow.

But will Samsung fail to meet this date too?

Since I have Verizon I'll see the update some time in April.

That is almost definitely fake - the S5 is coded G900, not N900.

I really don't get why people get so horny about updates. I mean If there's something not working and you are looking for a patch or an update I get it, but I've tried Marshmallow and 90% of the users won't even notice any difference. I see people swearing,insulting and sometimes threatening major companies ! "YOU ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS, YOU PROMISED US LOLLIPOP A MONTH AGO, WHERE IS IT? WHY WHY WHY?"

Lol true... I choose to patiently wait for android 6 update on my M8, jump from 5.0 pretty much satisfied, it carry all new feature of sense 7. I mean it's worth all the wait, more stable, less bug, better battery & carry extra feature & better UI. It seems Samsung really took their time to develop edge feature.
