Samsung is now rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge
Earlier today, it became clear that Samsung had just begun pushing Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow to the Galaxy S6 edge and S6 edge+ in its home country, making us a little bit envious of the new features that these are about to score. And rightly so, as we've been waiting quite a long time for the international Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to receive the newest Android flavor!
Fortunately, our wait is finally over! In a rather brief blog post today, the domineering Android vendor announced that TouchWiz-flavored Android Marshmallow is being seeded to international users starting today, February 15. As we said, the only two devices that will be receiving the update starting today are the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge, but other Marshmallow devices will follow suit in the near future. Samsung says that separate announcements with release schedule and additional details will be disclosed once it's the right time.
Have in mind that the update will only be hitting those international Galaxy S6 and S6 edge units and most certainly not their carrier-specific versions. Sorry, Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint users - you will probably have to wait a bit more.
As far as the feature list is concerned, the update brings all Marshmallow features on board — the most notable are Doze, which improves standby battery performance, and Google Now On Tap, which provides contextual information about whatever you have on your screen. You can check out some leaked manuals that seem to show all of the new features right below.
