Samsung updates the Galaxy A9 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
Interestingly, Sammobile reports that Samsung pushed two separate Android 6.0.1 updates for the Galaxy A9 in the past week. The build dates differ by nearly two weeks and the latest version comes with build number A9000ZCU1BPE2. Unlocked Galaxy A9 owners should have already received a notification for the update. If not, users can manually check for the update by heading over to Settings -> About device -> Software update.
Users report that the update is a standard Samsung implementation of Android 6.0 which includes the usual Marshmallow goodies such as granular app permissions, Google Now on Tap, and the battery-saving Doze system. For a much closer look at the 6.0 version of Google's OS, head on over to our detailed Android 6.0 Marshmallow review.
At a first glance, the fact that Samsung has launched the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for a China-exclusive smartphone bears no importance for our readers from the US. However, we should note that the Galaxy A9 has now become the first phone in Samsung’s metallic Galaxy A series to receive its Marshmallow update. As such, other phones in the line-up, such as the Galaxy A5 (2016) and the Galaxy A7 (2016) are probably next in line to get their Android 6.0 updates.
