Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow pushed to Galaxy S6 edge and edge+ in South Korea, here are the new features

Patiently waiting for your Galaxy S6, S6 edge, or S6 edge+ to score Android 6.0? Well, we know how that one feels! Samsung has been certainly taking its time and postponing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade for its high end devices — it's already February and neither the Galaxy S6, nor the Note 5, let alone the S6 edge or S6 edge+ have been updated to Android 6.0, except for some units that are part of a beta test. As a refresher, the Samsung's 2014 flagship, the Galaxy S5, got updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop back in mid-January 2015. Shame.


Fortunately, our wait might be nearing its conclusive chapter — it seems that Sammy is now officially rolling Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update to the S6 edge and edge+ in its home country, South Korea. No word on when this will happen for the rest of the world, but let's hope that this will have become a fact by the end of February. 

Well, apart from the well-known Android 6.0 features like Doze mode and Google Now on Tap, Samsung is also including some additional features for the S6 edge and S6 edge+ that finally make a better use of their highlight - the curved edge display and the edge panel menus. You can explore these in the gallery below. 

On a related note, last week we got hold of some alleged manuals that revealed a great deal of other features that will hit Sammy's top-end phones very soon. You can check these right here.


We have no reasons to believe that these features will remain exclusive for the South Korean version of the S6 edge and S6 edge+. On the contrary, we are mostly certain that these will land on your devices as soon as that coveted "Software update available" notification pops up!
