Samsung working on a major update for the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5

Is Samsung working on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for its 2015 flagships? We’re not sure if that’s the case, but we have learned that the Korean manufacturer is currently preparing a major update for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. We are working on getting more information from our sources, but at this point all we know is that the next update for the four devices will be bigger than the usual updates we see every now and then.

This new update might be Android 6.0 considering that is the only big thing on the horizon in the Android world, but it could also be focused at bringing more stability to Android 5.1.1. For the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, we could see more features from the Note 5 and S6 edge+ making a debut, in addition to the ones that Samsung has already backported to the 5.1-inch S6 duo. The firmware version for the S6 edge will change from G925FXXU2COH2 to G925FXXU3COI6, where the jump from U2 to U3 in the build number is a good indication that we will be seeing considerable user-facing changes.

Android Marshmallow is our best guess since all four flagships are included in the list, or an update with new features for each phone. We were also told that Marshmallow will be making it to the Galaxy Note 4, but it’s unclear as to when the oft-neglected device will get the upgrade. Since Marshmallow hasn’t even been officially released by Google yet, we will need to wait for more details to get a better picture of Samsung’s plans.

My Note4 did not even see Lollipop 5.0.1. Still running kitkat cause Santa didn’t bring me the OTA. I am already thinking to switch to Nexus 6P or Iphone6s. Atleast I will get timely OS updates.

I will have to say this if my Note 3 doesn’t get Marshmellow I will not be buying another Samsung Device. I mean the new version is out and and the Note 3 is stuck on 5.0. If Samsung is going to copy Apple concepts like no SD card, and no removable battery then copy their software support practices too! I mean the Iphone 4s can install IOS 9 that is the equivalent of the S3 and the Note 2 getting Marshmellow!

There are now 3rd party cases for Samsung, with extra power-bank builtin, and removable m-SD card. I commented in my name on a Youtube video on this product.

If you want miniaturization, they cannot put EVERYTHING in, unfortunately.

i think that samsung is doing a dirty game here
as every one can notice that on every old model phones they update they actually downgrade to force costumers to leave there phones and get the new ones
for example the note 4 with kitkat was great till the lolipop 5.0 it got worst in ram management and battery draining then the 5.1.1 its the worst of them all
more lagging ram management at its worst and battery draining was fast as lightning
i thing this is the company way to force you to abandon your old phones to get the new ones

Which idiots downgraded your post… dumbasses. I agree we’re still stuck on 5.0. WTF How can Apple still support the iphone 4s with IOS 9 and my note 3 probably won’t even get Marshmellow

I agree with Nemir. Samsung neglects its current and old handsets in providing software upgradation. I had migrated from Nokia to Samsung in 2012 and have been observing it. I am currently using A5 and am not expecting Android 6.0.

Perhaps I will make switch to iPhone, which provides software updates to all its handsets without discrimination.

We need new updated TouchWiz UX for Note5 S6 Note4 and S5 . As always for years, we see just Android ( 6.0 ) itself and nothing is gonna be change in terms of TouchWiz UX version! .

Samsung always makes new interface for a new device and neglects current devices in order to force customers to buy a new device . Other companies always updated the UI .

I doubt it will arrive this year, but you know what, as long as they release quick security updates I don’t mind waiting a bit for the big releases. What they need to do it to get it right the first time, with as few bugs as possible.

It’s kind of depressing that when I get the Note 6, after 6 months it will be neglected like the Note 4 was after just 3 months

Sammy has come out numerous times saying updates would be quicker and security-related ones would occur monthly. I have no clue if this update will be 6.0 or when it arrives. However if they are serious then by Christmas for a major update is my idea of quicker updates. If not I’ll live with it.

S6,S6EDGE,S6EDGE+,NOTE 5 RUNNING THE NEWER PROCESSORS SOUNDS LIKE HOPEFULLY WILL GET THESES RAM MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS FIX SENSE ALL THESE DEVICES ARE HAVING THE SAME PROBLEMS. WILL BE GREAT TO GET THIS B4 6.0…BATTERY LIFE IS COOL ON NOTE 5 BUT ANY IMPROVEMENTS WILL WELCOME ..

Definitely this south Korean company will not update within this year. Note 5 and Edge plus may be updated in March 2016 and then they will update S5 note 4. Make the users of S6 and S6 edge to crush their mind “will it come or not” like how they did to S5 during lollipop. Especially the G900H users. Should not believe these OEM on a promising date. Well I love sammies theme and hardware always hence I am using it. So what I conclude is don’t believe on a perfect ETA of android marshmallow from Sammy.

Well u didn’t mention the note 4 in that update so sounds like this will be a fix for a more stable 5.1.1 with ram management and better battery life..hopefully cell standby and Google services drain wen on wifi…if so these still will be the best devices on the market in My opinion…S6 AND NOW MY NOTE 5 IS A BEAST!!!!!
